  title={Riskware: A Game for Teaching Software Project Risk Management},
  author={Carlos Mario Zapata Jaramillo and Mar{\'i}a Clara G{\'o}mez {\'A}lvarez and Guillermo Gonz{\'a}lez-Calderon},
Risk can highly affect the management of software development projects, because risky situations commonly arise in this kind of projects. Well-known strategies for teaching software engineering are not enough for developing management skills of the students and, particularly, risk management is a difficult issue for practicing in the classroom. Since experience-based games have been successfully designed and applied to teaching, we propose in this paper riskware, an experience-based game for…
