  11. 11. Risk management Risk management refers to reducing the probability of impact of adverse events in a project. Agile software development, due to its iterative nature, implicitly makes risk management part of the project life cycle. Identification of risks: The whole team does this exercise in an iterative way. The results are recorded on a whiteboard or flipchart. Risk Analysis: In agile projects development cycles are short and with constant revisions, which makes this possible and effective. Risk Response Planning: The entire team participates in the development of options and actions to reduce threats. Control and Monitoring of Risk: The risk is monitored, and at the end of each iteration the control strategies are discussed. Risks are also monitored daily through the use of information radiators.
