Many organisations do not perform risk management in their systems development projects; hence many projects tend to be like uninsured assets. Since the massive increase in computer programs, supply and maintenance of information systems has remained a problem. The maintenance problems of these large systems were mainly due to the informal structure which was followed in the development of the applications. Systems development methodologies were therefore authored to deal with these fears or risks. It has thus been a general assumption that methodologies take care of risks in a project and generally improve the effectiveness of the products. This article presents a technique for analysing what components of a systems development methodology address what type of risks. Using this technique it is possible to determine how well a methodology addresses certain risks and therefore results in better decisions about what methodologies would be suitable for your project.
