This first volume of the Risk-First series, looks at managing software projects under an alternative perspective.

"Is it scientific? No. Is it correct? Almost certainly".
During his career, Rob Moffat came to the conclusion that things don’t match up with the way the books say they should be done. This view was formed when he observed that:
