Osamu Mizuno, Tohru Kikuno, Yasunari Takagi, Keishi Sakamoto
2000 Proceedings of the 22nd international conference on Software engineering - ICSE '00  
In this paper, we propose a new scheme for the characterization of risky projects based on an evaluation by the project manager.  ...  During the process of software development, senior managers often find indications that projects are risky and take appropriate actions to recover them from this dangerous status.  ...  Shinji Kusumoto of Osaka University for his discussions and advice to our analysis in this paper. We also would like to thank anonymous reviewers for their useful comments.  ...

Pricing software development services

Yossi Lichtenstein, Alan McDonnell
2003 European Conference on Information Systems  
Using agency theory and transaction cost economics, it is predicted that risky and specific systems will be priced on time and material basis while other projects will be fixed price.  ...  The predictions are tested on fourteen external software development projects in two large corporations.  ...  The reason is that for a risky project the agent would require a high premium to accept the risk of performance-based payments.  ...

Project Duration and Risk Factors on Virtual Projects

April H. Reed, Linda V. Knight
2013 Journal of Computer Information Systems  
Little or no research has been conducted on the intersection of these three areas; virtual projects, project risk and project failure, being labeled as Virtual Software Project Risk.  ...  The research question for this study is: Which risks are critical to the successful completion of virtual software projects?  ...  Therefore, we can deduce the set of identified critical risk factors will vary by project size, as measured by attributes such as duration, cost, number of resources and/or number of resource locations  ...
