“Hitting the Target” – Business Value in Mission-Focused Organizations

In the simplest terms, software development decisions for commercial organizations can be reduced to a calculation of whether the cost of developing the software will be outweighed by the revenue generated or costs saved by the software.

However, what does this mean for government and other non-commercial organizations for whom the impact of software isn’t primarily measured in terms of revenue?  How should organizations prioritize work in the face of conflicting goals and metrics?  Help more people?  Minimize delays?  Prosecute more crimes? Lower costs? In this session participants will experience a dice-based simulation that has been created to explore these questions by examining the impact of these decisions on the performance of organizations in changing environments.
