Abstract: Projects fail at a Spectacular rate. Do you want to improve the chances of success for your project? Do you want to Spot problems before they get out of hand? Avinash has introduced an innovative risk identification methodology to the software industry, which helps identify big problems, fatal flaws in projects, programs, initiatives and improves the chance of success of a project. This helps you identify risks that can’t be found with traditional risk identification techniques. With this technique you can find risks and fatal flaws in the plan/project at the beginning of the project, so that you will have time to act on them and improve chances of success of your projects. This technique has been used in many industries like oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, and construction and has helped save 100s of millions of dollars. Avinash has used this methodology extensively in the software industry with great success. This technique can be used in any industry or business and even in your personal life. This methodology is very easy to use.
