Abstract:


Generally, in software development, there are large, medium, and small software projects that each of them can be affected or influenced by a risk. Therefore, it requires a distinctive assessment process of the potential risks that may cause failure or loss of the project whenever they occur. From the literature, there are actually number of risk assessment researches conducted toward software projects. However, there are at least view researches being focused on risk assessment of small and medium software projects. These particularly results in a gap to the risk assessment research area that may lead to a lot of small and medium project not having risk assessment. For that reason, the main target of the article is to give researchers an insight on the current level of risk assessment for small and medium software development projects. Finally, some future directions will be discussed hoping to insight the gap in the risk assessment field for small and medium software development projects.
