    One response to “CHALICE: Risk Analysis and Success Plan”

    1. Also worth considering how the best laid plans of mice and men might derail the project (as it is the most common risk), though realise having an agile iterative process with reflection period mitigates this.

      What about the successes, what are small small WINs that are worth listing to aim for. What would a success look like for the project along the way to the final aim? 🙂
