This session will be an interactive workshop. Participants will exercise the concepts to explore example and real world scenarios by attempting to quantify the potential value of those scenarios.

Quantifying Cost of Delay not only helps improve prioritization, but also helps with making trade-off decisions. It creates a healthy sense of urgency, and changes the focus of the conversation from efficiency and cost (which can encourage counterproductive behavior) to speed and value. If you’re interested in experimenting with Cost of Delay, but not sure how to get started, then this workshop is specifically for you!
