Strengthening SAFe’s Use of CoD and WSJF

In this session, Don Reinertsen (author of Principles of Product Development Flow), and Joe Vallone (SPCT/SAFe Fellow), will discuss the current Portfolio level implementation of Cost of Delay as well as WSJF, and suggest ways to improve the economic choices by quantifying impacts in dollars.  A model will be presented and P&L impacts will be analyzed using sensitivity analysis. Those that work (or consult) with Finance, Accounting, LPM or want a deeper dive into CoD and WSJF should consider attending.
