I am just watching the pmprepcast episode "Enterprise Enviromental Factors" and there is something I do not understand. The prepcast says, there is no influence of environmental factors in scope management.
I do not agree and do not understand why. To define a scope, for example, I have to consider environmental factors, because if I do not, the scope may be defined in a way which is not adequate for the company.
To create WBS seems to me also relevant for environmental factors. If I do not consider environmental factors, the defined work package might be not manageable.

I believe the EEF is a factor, just not a direct input. EEF is an input to many processes that create outputs. It is those outputs that are then inputs to scope management. So, officially, as Cornelius said, EEF is not an input ... but we know they are there.
