Correct Answer: D

Overt Risk Management is the implementation of risk management techniques on your Agile project to explicitly identify, track and create risk responses plans for project risks. Organic Risk Management is the amount of risk reduced on your project inherently by implementing Agile best practices.  Organizational Risk Management and Optimal Risk Management are not terms recognized in Agile.
