Abstract

Collaborative software development spanning national, language and cultural boundaries, raises new challenges and risks, which interfere with the success of software projects even when all traditional risk factors are being controlled. Software project management for such collaborative projects must address these concerns. In this paper, we outline a collaborative risk management approach and recommend policies and management processes for its support.
