Risk management strategies


Risk Strategy
Flash would crash on my project without saving Save every few minutes
Other people would convince me to do other things Ditch the friends. This project is serious business!
Place working on this project at a busy time Clear out the schedule. Nothing can't be too important at that time. Other than working on the project, that is.
My computer would crash, losing the project with it Sing my computer to sleep every night, giving it good dreams. Also, keep the project on a network drive or place it on a flash drive.
Find out Flash isn't able to play multiple mp3 files at the same time Research this further. Or try it out soon.
Work too much on a little issue when bigger issues are ignored Stop working on little things. They aren't that important right now.
