We tout the business results of applying SAFe and learn the principles from great sources like Don Reinertsen’s book, The Principles of Product Development Flow. But how can we connect the dots from the economics to the practices we want to apply and the decisions we need to make? In this session we use scenarios, in story problem format, and apply real numbers to demonstrate the value of the principles in action. We will explore finding optimal batch size, applying the economics framework to a specific decision, the cost of too much WIP, “death by shoulder tap”, and fast feedback cycles. We will also dive into the broad-brush practices of collaboration and relentless improvement. As a result of this session we will equip you to apply math to reinforce the economics of value delivery. No slide rule required.
