Ely, England, 6 September 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in IT governance training, consultancy, books and tools, has reported that there are only four weeks left until the first ever ISO 38500 Foundation training course to be held in the UK. Places are going fast and delegates are urged to book on this one-off course now. The company has partnered with Infonomics Pty Ltd (Australia), in order to offer IT leaders in the UK a chance to gain insight into the governance of IT and the associated standard.
ISO/IEC 38500 provides guiding principles for directors of organisations on the effective, efficient, and acceptable use of Information Technology (IT) within their organisations. This international standard applies to the governance of management processes and decisions relating to the information and communication services used by an organisation.
IT governance is recognised as a key driver in ensuring a competitive advantage and a return on capital investment in information technology. Therefore, chairmen, company directors and top level management are required to understand the key IT governance principles and their implementation process in accordance with international standards and best practice. The best way to achieve this is through training which can provide them with practical knowledge.
The two-day ISO 38500 Foundation training course will be held on the 3rd and 4th October in London. The course will be presented by Mark Toomey, an internationally recognised leading expert in the governance of information technology and ISO/IEC 38500.
The ISO 38500 Foundation training course is designed to build a deep appreciation of the key concepts in ISO 38500, equipping participants with the understanding necessary to begin applying the standard in all aspects of planning and controlling the use and delivery of IT. It explains in detail the concepts presented in the introduction, the governance model and the six principles for good governance of IT.
During the course, delegates have the opportunity to complete a unique individual 84-point self-assessment of their organisation’s own governance of IT. The self-assessment results are modelled and discussed within the class-room to provide a basis for further planning and implementation within each delegate’s organisation.
