Don Reinertsen’s fully quantified Cost of Delay model for prioritising backlogs sourced from many stakeholders is inspired, but many organisations struggle with implementing it and abandon attempts to have a rational discussion about value because it’s too hard to quantify in real money. And often, it is hard to forecast real money, and other, hard to quantify, factors such as Risk and brand really do play a part in understanding value.

This simulation provides a concrete model that enables exploration of a practical CoD prioritisation and sequencing approach (based on the version used in SAFe) and an experience of operating it in a group setting.
