The level of complexity and risks associated with software have been increasing in line with the growth of the software industry. Modern software development, with an emphasis on web and distributed development, presents specific challenges and risk areas to the software industry which need to be considered and managed. In this paper we survey a number of software risk management approaches and identify weaknesses such as the treatment of culture issues, geographical location, and process and product perspectives. These weaknesses must be tackled in order to accommodate the continuously evolving challenges to web and distributed software development and to cover some perspectives of the software industry which have not been well covered up to now. This work is a part of PhD research at Newcastle University (UK) to develop an improved approach to measure and control web and distributed development risks.
