Can you elaborate on the "Cost of Delay is lower than the cost of your team" part. I don't understand its meaning.

I'm inclined to say that if CoD > CoT your business is not sustainable

Cost of delay is how much it costs when it is delayed, e.g. you would earn 10K Euro per week

If your team costs 20 K Euro per week, and CoD is 10K Euro per week, then you have a problem.

Because I would still lose money even if I wouldn't delay.

And if CoD > CoT my product is making money as long as I don't delay.

Correct?

Yes, exactly! You lose more money from team delays than delaying the work.

Well, if CoD is greater than Cost of Team it means that what you're doing is more valuable than the team cost, which should be the case if you want to make money.
