SharpThought™ Risk Mitigation

Development and deployment of large-scale programs are fraught with the risks of cost overruns, limited deployability and unmet functional requirements. This fact is not a stranger to experienced project managers. Risk of failure cannot be eliminated, but it can be mitigated through the application of a thorough quality assurance program. The purpose of risk mitigation is to avoid the costly resolution of problems discovered after the fact. The process of risk mitigation employs standards of investigation, communication, and documentation. Alterion SharpThought™ follows the risk mitigation principles set forth by such noted bodies as the Software Engineering Institute (SEI at Carnegie Mellon University), the National Institute of Standards (NIST) and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
