Exploring risk dimensions in the Indian software industry

The success of software projects is quite subjective in nature and is fettered by many risks, the perception of which varies from individual to individual and largely depends on the demographic characteristics of the executives and even the characteristics of the project. This study aims to identify and gauge the software risk dimensions and analyze the differences of perception among executives toward software risks. The perceptions of software executives can be categorized primarily into four kinds of risk dimensions in the Indian software industry: software requirement specification (SRS) variability risk, team composition risk, control processes risk, and dependability risk. The contributions of this study untangle the issues underlying risks in the software industry and associate these issues with the perception of the "human" factor present in the industry.
