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 ISO 27001, COBIT® and ITIL® to choose from, how can managers govern effectively without spending excessive time and cost on rigid management processes?

  • Implement an IT governance framework and measure the results

The course combines a high level of academic content plus practical guidance on implementation. It also provides opportunities to link growing understanding of IT governance best practice to each delegate’s corporate environment or circumstances.
