Senior managers and consultants who advise on IT governance are much in demand in the boardrooms of large organisations throughout the world. IT governance is now recognised as a key driver in ensuring competitive advantage and a return on the often significant investment in information technology. To ensure you compete at the highest levels, you will need both experience and qualifications that are certified by accredited and respected independent organisations.
IT governance can be defined as a ‘framework for the leadership, organisational structures and business processes, standards and compliance to these standards, which ensure that an organisation’s IT supports and enables the achievement of its strategies and objectives.’, Alan Calder, IT Governance: A Pocket Guide, ITGP, 2007.
To ensure that you further develop your career in IT governance and obtain an industry-standard qualification, we have launched our Principles of IT Governance training course. Created and led by Alan Calder, this 3-day course delivers introductory training to raise awareness, build knowledge and develop a complete understanding of IT governance and its implementation. Alan is acknowledged by his peers as an expert in the field and is the author of a number of definitive publications which include IT Governance: Guidelines for Directors and Governance Today – a Practitioner’s Handbook.
