Due to this reason, the authors have decided to perform this study to make it easier for the companies, which use one of the agile development methods, to better foresee potential risks and to deal with their consequences. The aim of the research is to identify and classify risks in agile software development methods and the related projects based on the obtained survey data. To achieve the goal, the authors have developed evaluation criteria, as well as implemented practical questionnaire in various software development companies. From the obtained survey data, the risks are classified according to various factors, i.e., the changing highest and lowest priorities and needs in various projects.
