We present a methodology for effective risk management in global software development process planning. The proposed methodology starts with a detailed process model which is used for identifying risks based on a risk factor list. By linking the relevant risk factors to the process we seek to ease and improve the planning of the global software development process. Additionally, we built sub-processes for risk treatment. These risk treatments can be used to evaluate process improvements by simulation. Our tool-based methodology includes the following four steps: initial modeling of the original process, discovering the process risks by applying selected risk identification techniques, simulation and evaluation of process improvements, systematic selection and transformation of the original process model into an improved process model.
