Enterprise Performance Life Cycle Framework Training, EPLC Training

Enterprise Performance Life Cycle training, EPLC training course provides the techniques and knowledge to develop concepts of operations through commercial tools and methods. EPLC training covers professional, technical, policy, and strategy of developing Enterprise Performance Life Cycle (EPLC).

Enterprise Performance Life Cycle (EPLC) is a framework to enhance Information Technology (IT) governance through rigorous application of sound investment and project management principles and industry’s best practices. The EPLC provides the context for the IT governance process and describes interdependencies between its project management, investment management, and capital planning components.

You will also learn about the means to define the operational environments, constraints, and design drivers by using a real-life sample problem.  

Learning Objectives

After successfully completing the course the attendees will:

  • Learn the basic concepts behind EPLC framework
  • Develop basic skills in apprehending Enterprise Performance Life Cycle (EPLC) framework
  • Develop basic skills in preparing an EPLC
  • Learn about EPLC phases
  • Analyze EPLC objective, input, procedures and output
  • Learn about EPLC framework to enhance Information Technology (IT) governance through rigorous application of sound investment
  • Apply project management principles and industry’s best practices to EPLC
  • Develop the context for the EPLC governance process and interdependencies between its project management, investment management, and capital planning components.
