“If you only quantify one thing, quantify the Cost of Delay” – Don Reinertsen
Everyone seems to talk about Cost of Delay, but few are actually quantifying it. And yet doing so helps us to better manage stakeholders, improve prioritisation and change the focus of the conversation away from cost and dates onto delivering value quickly.
In this talk you will hear about how quantifying Cost of Delay of our ideas helps with:
– Improving prioritisation
– Managing multiple customers
– Trade off decisions across the whole portfolio
This is not a theoretical session, we’ve actually done this in lots of organisations: public and private sector, in large, medium and small organisations as well as using Cost of Delay across a $100m portfolio at a Fortune 500 company.
When people hear about Cost of Delay they sometimes doubt whether their organisation is ready for it. They say things like, “We don’t have the maturity for it”, or “We couldn’t do that because our stakeholders wouldn’t support it”. We’ve heard people say this too. And yet, in hindsight, people find it much easier than they thought!
From this session you will walk away with all the necessary knowledge and practical tips to get started with Cost of Delay and you will have seen lots of actual examples of Cost of Delay calculations from other organisations who have done this. You’ll also hear some interesting before and after results that might help you to make the case in your organisation. In our experience, quantifying Cost of Delay really helps to discover, nurture and speed up the delivery of value.
