Components of cost of delay 11 Relative value to the customer • They prefer this over that • Revenue impact? • Potential penalty or negative impact How user/business value decays over time • Is there a fixed deadline? • Will they wait for us or move to another solution? • What is the current effect on customer satisfaction? What else does this do for our business? • Reduce the risk of this or future delivery? • Is there value in the information we will receive? • Enable new business opportunities? Risk Reduction Opportunity Enablement Time CriticalityBusiness Value

  23. 23. © Scaled Agile. Inc. Summary ► WSJF is an approach for sequencing jobs to produce maximum economic benefit ► Proxy values are used to relatively score jobs; remember start with 1, and use relatively scores ► The biggest impact to the WSJF ranking is job size; try to break things down into small increments ► Your context will change, WSJF should be revisited at regular intervals 23
