Risk Management

Risk management is the original core competence of R & D-Ware Oy. Our work in this area is based on professor Kontio's doctoral research done at the University of Maryland with professor Victor R. Basili. We have trained dozens of organizations and over 1000 professionals in use of modern risk management methods.
