EVC® (Enterprise Value Creation) version

Advantages offered by Global Lynx
Global Lynx offers you training courses in the EVC methodology, which is urgently needed by organizations for the following reasons:
- Businesses and government
agencies are investing considerably in digital process improvements and
innovation initiatives; and forecasting the benefits of these initiatives is a
challenge because they have a high-level of uncertainty in its prediction. Therefore,
organizations need a structured framework and method to effectively assess,
forecast, quantify, compare, and measure the value created in an enterprise
with any initiative, project, program, or portfolio.
- Business cycles are now
very short. In order to survive in the
new digital ecosystem, companies cannot longer afford long business
cycles. Budgeting and strategic planning
needs to be more dynamic because new opportunities, or threats, appear
constantly, and many new projects and initiatives –from idea-to-execution— need
to be implemented in months, and often in weeks. The technology to allow business-agility is
here (i.e., Cloud, mobility, smart devices, IoT, etc.), however,
the current processes and governance do not provide a two-modality framework
for rapid project evaluation, approval and budgeting. The EVC 3.0 Framework provide a method and
framework for the two-modality, the fast-lane, and the endurance and
traditional governance lane for project evaluation and approval.
- EVC applies to any
projector initiative of any type, for any business area, and at any level (from
small initiatives, to large complex projects; as well as to evaluate the value
created with portfolios and long-term strategic plans.
