    ABSTRACT: Risk management is an essential process in software project management. Effective management of risk significantly helps increase rate of project success as well as reduce potential costs of failures. This paper proposes an innovative card-based game which simulates entire cycle of risk management. During the activity, the participants form an organization called “A Risk Management Incorporation (ARMI)”. They are then given chance to experience, analyze, plan, repeat and evolve their risk management processes. Based on the study result, ARMI helps not only simulate an insightful risk management cycle but also improve the participants’ attitude towards this critical project element.

    ABSTRACT: Software development is uniquely different especially when compared to other engineering processes. The abstractness of software products has a major influence on the entire software development life cycle which results in a number of uniquely important challenges. This book chapter describes and discusses Engineering Construction for Software Engineers (ECSE), an effective workshop which helps software engineering students to understand some of these critical issues in a short period of time. In this workshop, the students are required to develop a pseudo-software product from scratch. They could learn about unique characteristics and risks of software development life cycle as well as other distinctive phenomenon through the activities. The workshop can still be easily followed by students who are not familiar with certain software development processes such as coding or testing.

    ABSTRACT: Mum effect is a situation when one or more project stakeholders decide to withhold critical information for particular reasons. In software project where most of the production is intangible, the seriousness of this challenge increases exponentially. There have been reports indicating that mum effect can surface during any phase of development and ultimately lead to disaster in software projects. Mum effect can be influenced by several factors such as organizational and national cultures. This research investigates potential mum effect scenarios and reveals specific reasons which induce this challenge among Thai IT practitioners.

    ABSTRACT: Due to many of their unique characteristics, software development projects have inferior rate of success. Developing, customizing and installing nine types of business software for twenty different entrepreneurs in a few months would be deemed as a mission impossible for many project managers. This paper describes a program which involves a development and customization of fourteen logistics software within less than three months. Twenty two entrepreneurs as well as six software houses were included in the program. Although a number of serious challenges surfaced during the development, the program ultimately succeeded. Key findings and success factors from this case study are discussed in this paper.

    ABSTRACT: In order to remain competitive in software industry, software engineers need to continuously improve their proficiency. Personal Software Process (PSPSM) provides a strong concept which helps software engineers inspecting and improving themselves. Yet, when being applied on an undergraduate computer engineering course, several complex mathematical calculations from PSP official exercises could encumber the performance of students who do not possess adequate mathematics background. This paper reports a result of implementing PSP course for undergraduate computer engineering students in Chiang Mai University, Thailand.

    ABSTRACT: Offshore outsourcing has become a critical strategy for business sustainability. Due to vastly different costs of software development around the world, a large number of organizations from developed countries choose to outsource parts of their activities to overseas. This stimulates competition between outstanding developing countries. This paper proposes a framework for improving degree of attractiveness in an offshore outsourcing destination based on risks. INTRODUCTION Offshore outsourcing is one of the recent major phenomenon in international software industry. With powerful hi-speed communication and Internet technologies, a variety of software projects can be remotely established and efficiently managed across the planet. Regardless the highly concerned additional risks and rising employment problems in the offshore outsourcee nations, it is widely accepted that offshoring is an inevitable trend and will continue to grow for at least another decade. Offshoring provides several substantial benefits to the practitioners. Costs reduction is arguably the most important benefits on the majority of offshoring decisions. 24/7 operation, flexibility and access to highly skilled professional are also among the top outstanding reasons of offshoring benefits (Laplante, Costello et al. 2004).

    ABSTRACT: Culture is arguably perceived as the most influential risk factor in offshore outsourcing of software projects. Yet, due to its intangible characteristics, quantifying and systematizing this factor seems to be impracticable. This paper proposes a new approach to enhance risk assessment process by involving culture in the calculation. The results from this new approach suggest a better evaluation of risk which leads to more appropriate planning and mitigation.

    ABSTRACT: Offshore outsourcing of software projects is an important competitive strategy in modern software business. There has been a long discussion of risks and benefits of this approach. Interestingly, while some issues are perceived as a significant benefit by a group of researchers, they are conversely perceived as a critical risk by others. This paper dis-cusses the two sides of these risk-benefit elements as well as their management strategies.
