EVC3TM Framework

WHAT IS EVC3TM FRAMEWORK?


  • EVC3TM is short for Enterprise Value Creation, Collaboration and Communication.
    EVC3 is a FRAMEWORK that ENABLES the Enterprise Value Creation of new initiatives, and existing assets and services; by providing EVC Principles, and EVC Enabling Tools (models, methods and best practices) that can be adopted and adapted for all areas and departments of an enterprise.

  • Designed for the digital age, EVC3 provides the “how-to”

  • Effectively identify business and customer needs.
  • Determine the risk, and the degree of urgency (required speed for execution) for each new initiative.
  • Quantify, validate and measure all of the economic and strategic benefits for an initiative.
  • Create a dynamic culture of proactive collaboration and effective communication between the IT teams and business teams, before projects are approved, to ensure that the forecasted benefits and expected ROI of every initiative is realized.

WHY EVC3

EVC3 Solves Important IT and Business Management Pain Points, including:

  1. A large number of IT projects fail to deliver the expected business results.
  2. With the new requirements for Two-Speed IT, companies need an effective way to prioritize projects based on Urgency — and C-level executives and their teams don't know how to do it.
  3. Many IT investments are now made by the business areas; requiring an increased collaboration and communication between the IT areas and the business areas.
  4. The Two-Speed IT approach, and corporate cultures of Innovation, is resulting in an increased number of risky initiatives, with an even higher probability of failure than in the past.

What if a company does not invest in EVC3?

  1. Will have a substantial increase in the % of IT projects that fail.
  2. A lot of money will be wasted in new projects with no positive outcome and business results.
  3. Important strategic projects may not be identified, approved, and/or treated with high priority.
  4. Initiatives that would help protect from security or market threats may not be prioritized properly.

As a Culture


EVCTM is best when it is implemented as a CULTURE of Enterprise Value Creation.


Since 1992 hundreds of enterprises, and thousands of business and technology professionals and managers around the world, have been using EVC. Version 3 of the EVC Framework was released in 2016; and includes enhancements to meet the new requirements of the digital age, and to complement other frameworks and standards that emphasize the need to better assess and measure value, in order to increase the probability of projects’ success.


EVC can be used to identify (before implementation), enable (during implementation) and sustain (after implementation) the value of an individual project, solution, or service; or a complete portfolio of initiatives; and/or to define the strategic plan of any business or technology initiative.


Investments and initiatives in Big Data, the Cloud, Analytics, Virtualization, Mobility, IoT, Security, and just about any technology or business initiative is best justified and measured using the components of the EVC Framework.   More...
