Free Risk Assessments for IT and Software Development Projects

Risk Assessment for IT Projects

Quickly diagnose problems and instantly get recommendations to reduce the risk of project failure


In a few minutes from now, you can have a full risk assessment containing recommendations to help you better manage your IT and software development projects. Completely free of charge.

No proprietry or confidential information is required, fully GDPR compliant, takes a few minutes to complete and results are made available to you right away.

By answering a short online questionaire, our sophisticated assessment model will be able to calculate a risk rating for your project and provide you with a list of recommendations to reduce the risk of project failure. You can perform the assessment before starting a new project, whilst still in the planning stage or while the project is underway (if you have just come across this tool).

Suitable for all types of IT and software development projects, including new product development, general programming and coding, rebuilds of existing systems and solutions, bespoke and custom software, integration with COTS and legacy systems.

Our risk assessment tool is used by Business Analysts, Project Managers, Delivery Managers, Service Managers, Programme Managers and anyone else who has responsibility for IT and software delivery that wants to better understand the risks they are carrying.

Background to the risk assessment tool

Unlike the litany of "helpful" advice and whitepapers pushed upon project managers about what they should be doing, our risk assessment tool is based upon our real world, direct and personal experience of why projects go off the rails. Instead of listing out every possible risk event under the sun, we look more widely for project factors that can be reasonably expected to increase the overall risk. And we've not seen such a model anywhere else.

The online risk assessment tool is actually a cut down version of our full Project Review Service which we use to correct an in-flight project that has significantly deviated from its intended course. We built this tool to make the elements of this kind of service available to those who don't have the time or opportunity to use our full project review service.

We feel it's better to ensure your IT project stays on track from the beginning if it possibly can, and that our tool can play a part in helping you with this.
