Agile Risk Management

Agile risk management is concerned with the identification, assessment, treatment and monitoring of risk in a manner consistent with the preferences and principles of the agile manifesto. It embodies not only project risk management but also promotes a link to enterprise risk management through a combination of the aggregation of bottom-up risks and the application of top-down risk scenarios. The ultimate purpose of agile risk management is to balance risk and reward since the pursuit of the latter rarely entails absence of the former. Whilst doing so, agile risk managers must remain sensitive to social and cultural influences on the identification, prioritisation and treatment of risk.
