Course description

Introduction to IT Governance

This course is designed for information technology and audit professionals to understand how to realize the potential and value from investments in information technology.

When done well IT governance ensures that information technology delivers value to the organization. That value is measured in terms of aligning the business to establish IT is working on things important to the business, realizing tangible benefits from the IT function, projects and services, and minimizing risks that may result from IT implementations or activities.

Governance is not singular in its nature. It consists of leadership, organizational structures and decision-making processes that facilitate accountability of IT activities as well as sustain and extend the organization’s strategies and priorities. While governance is a somewhat abstract concept, its application or lack thereof has a very real impact on organizations. Some symptoms of ineffective IT governance can include a perception that IT costs are too high, IT service levels are not consistently being met, innovation and business agility are limited by IT and that there is overlap in system resources.

At the conclusion of this seminar attendees will have an in-depth understanding of how to establish and implement an Enterprise IT Governance Program.
