Quantify the Cost of Delay
The Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) framework lets you quantify the financial costs of developing or not developing specific items when making your prioritization decisions. Sequence your development process to continuously provide the best return on your development time. Quantify the cost of delaying an item and then estimate the time it will take to develop it. Then, to calculate your WSJF score for each item, divide the cost of delay by the job duration. You can customize the weights for either metric to reflect the needs of your organization.
