Risk measure when you have very few historical data

September 5th, 2013, 7:47 am

Well in my opinion in the case I have mentionned the risks are :-very high (even unrealistic) customer expectations (I gave you plenty of money and of time so I want my cancer vaccine !!!)-not so motivated team because there is no dead line pressure (oh come on don't be hurry we have 10 years left ...)-cash berserk behaviour (we have plenty of cash so for safety we will buy all our stuffs by ten. We are never cautious enough !)-overconfidence in project success (we have tons of money and so much time that we cannot fail)

Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.
