A lean mantra is "eliminate waste", but waste can be many different things meassured in different units, e.g. time to implement a feature (days), utilisation (%), cost of resources ($), missed oppurtunities (?), etc. How do we make rational economic decisions of which waste we should focus on eliminating.
Some talking points:
- Do the managers understand the economics of our project?
- Do the devolopers understand the economics?
- Do we need to understand the ecomics?
- How do we get better at understanding the economics?
Economic models may help us, here is a good presentation:
