The stages of implementation are underpinned by five principles:

eportfolio implementation 5 stagesThe 5 principles; Purpose, Learning Activity, Processes, Ownership and Transformation emerged from the studies as key themes within every stage of implementation and we are endeavouring to follow this model at the University. For an in depth analysis of these, visit the EPI guidance for practitioners and senior managers.
