Analysis of Scrum practices for risk treatment
The adoption of the Scrum framework is growing in order to increase the success rate of software development projects. However, the risk treatment in Scrum is performed implicitly. In addition, the scientific literature on this topic is scarce. This study aims to identify and analyze the risk treatment practices proposed by Scrum. The research method used is the case study with the participation of the Scrum Masters from the Instituto Nacional de Telecomunicações. The results indicate that, unlike literature, the simple integration of the Extreme Programming and Scrum is not able to reduce the projects risks and the initial risk analysis is performed in possession of the Sprint backlog. The Scrum Master has key role in the risk treatment and this treatment must be done with an emphasis on Product Backlog and during the Sprint.
