Here in my case Interval until next deadline check is set for 3 minutes. You can set it as per your requirement.

Deadline monitoring step is the Requested Start  

In User Decision click on 'Requested Start' Tab.


Choose the "Work Item Creation" from the list box.


 Choose an offset of 2 minutes. This means that the work item shall be created after 2 minutes. Otherwise this would trigger. Save and activate the workflow definition. 

 Check the workflow in Workflow Log and Monitor that the User Decision is in waiting stage up to the time set in Requested Start.
