 Tim Lister - Principal of the Atlantic Systems Guild, Inc. 
In order for a software project to deliver complex products successfully, we must learn how to court inherent risk, rather than try to avoid it, or even worse, ignore it. Every great software project is full of risk; maybe that is why it is worth doing in the first place. This talk explained all of the basics of software risk management, and Tim Lister offered the opinion that software risk management IS project management for grown-ups. Tim offered a process of risk, identification, evaluation, mitigation, and containment, which you can use on your project immediately.

Poster by Doug Desaulniers available for viewing at the meeting.
