The current techniques of risk assessment rely on checklists and human expertise. This constitutes a rigorous approach only when the people are experts on risk assessment. This thesis introduces a formal method and addresses the necessity of the identification and analysis of the risk. During implementation of risk management process, risk assessment will be discussed within an acquisition of software intensive systems in the Turkish Army. This thesis includes a survey and comparison of other software risk management processes. Risk areas are identified according to the proposed risk management approach. To decrease the number and impacts of risks to the projects, project risk management teams must be established within each project team and all risk management activities must be fulfilled by the whole project members of both acquirer and supplier. With this method, risk management efforts are going to be executed in a planned and ordered way. We believe that the enhancement of the current risk management practices with the proposed approach, the Turkish Army teams will be able to lower the project costs and development time, while increasing the product quality.
