The paper examines the state of the problem of the influence of risks on the project team's work process. The processes of the team's work during the
implementation of the project sprint are defined. The authors identified risk factors that affect the effectiveness of the project team. An analysis of
modern approaches was carried out and three directions were identified, which represent the research of project team management processes under
conditions of risk. A comprehensive reference model of project team management under risk conditions is proposed in the form of a framework. It
reflects the interrelationship of four models: the project team behavior model, the model for assessing the quality of the formation of sprint tasks, the
model for determining the distribution of tasks in the project team, and the model for the formation of recommendations. The project team evaluates
the text description of the task, obtained from the information system, using the sprint task formation quality assessment model. Natural language
processing methods are used to create a model for evaluating the quality of forming sprint tasks, which combine the method of processing text
information and the method of learning based on precedents, which allows taking into account the previous experience of the team and its behavior.
The project team behavior model allows taking into account the risks of irrational work organization during the sprint. The behavior of the project
team is analyzed using Process Mining methods. The case representation model allows the project team to store and reuse knowledge and experience
based on simulation modeling and reinforcement learning approaches. It allows the team to determine and evaluate possible options for the distribution
of tasks and resources in the team in accordance with the reduction of possible risks. The central element of the proposed framework is the model of
recommendations used in decision-making. It provides the project team with the necessary information for effective decision-making in terms of risks
in project management. The proposed framework provides an opportunity to reduce the impact of the risks of non-fulfillment of project tasks during
the sprint. Further studies of the task of managing the project team under conditions of risk should be directed to the development of specified models
of the proposed framework
