Create a Single Framework to Ensure IT Delivers on All Business Objectives

Effective IT governance is acknowledged as the key to strategic IT management in all successful organisations. But with so many related standards and frameworks such as ISO27001, COBIT® and ITIL® to choose from, how can managers govern effectively without spending excessive time and cost on rigid management processes?

Created by Alan Calder, the Implementing IT Governance training course is a three-day classroom session that delivers foundation training to raise awareness, build knowledge and develop a complete understanding of IT governance. Its focus is practically-orientated with the aim of providing comprehensive strategies and methodologies to enable immediate implementation. This course is also delivered online.

  • Understand and define IT governance and its best practice
  • Achieve the alignment of IT and business plans
  • Navigate and integrate all the currently available IT governance frameworks
  • Identify and manage IT risk across the enterprise
  • Implement an IT governance framework and measure the results

Who should attend?
