AGENDA - EVC Foundation

I. Introduction to EVC

II. Value Types
A Business Case goes beyond ROI. A business case must demonstrate value at all key levels in an organization, including the strategic, financial, economic, and operational value of a solution. These section present the key value types, and how they must be presented to key decision makers, and to all the necessary project stakeholders in order to realize the expected benefits and minimize resistance to change.

The section also presents the stages and capabilities needed to assess, quantify, forecast, validate and measure the benefits, costs and risk with all the stakeholders and key decision makers.

V. EVC Principles, Enabling Tools & Best Practices

VI. EVC Stakeholders roles
The benefits, costs and risk of a project need to be validated with the necessary stakeholders to ensure that the expected value from the project is realized.
