Read Frequently Asked Questions

In this IT governance program Hear firsthand about the challenges, issues and rewards of implementing an IT Governance program, using an on-the-ground case study approach.

Why Should You Attend:

Hear firsthand about the challenges, issues and rewards of implementing an IT Governance program, using an on-the-ground case study approach.
IT governance means different things to different people. To many, including regulators and auditors, IT governance is synonymous with compliance, yet business executives want more than regulatory compliance from IT Governance. They want to see accountability and clear decision rights over IT, they want measurable value created from their IT investments, they want to avoid being broadsided by unperceived IT risks, they want cost-effective IT security and they want IT to link and contribute to the organization’s strategy and performance drivers.

This session will enlighten IT governance and compliance professionals on how to incorporate these business drivers into an IT governance program and how to interpret what the business really wants. Based on actual interviews with Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and practical experience, learn how to actively promote and market IT governance to meet both IT and business needs. Find out what the business truly wants from IT governance and what strategies will engage and enthuse the business.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establishing leadership and support for an IT governance initiative.
  • How to get the business engaged, and invested, in IT governance.
  • What executive management want from IT Governance.
  • Proven strategies used by CIOs to educate the CEO and business executives on the value of IT governance.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • The different approaches to implementing an IT Governance program.
  • Why the business should be invested in IT governance.
  • What IT governance really means to the business.
  • Why we even need to sell IT governance to the business, especially if it is helping to get our ‘IT house’ in order and that is all the business needs or wants to know.
  • The role of business executives in IT governance.
  • Why getting the business engaged in IT decisions is so difficult and even more so, in getting business executives to accept accountability for committed project benefits and IT investments.
  • How to sell IT governance and obtain buy-in and commitment from the business to develop and implement an IT Governance Program.
  • Supplemented by case study examples of:
    • Strategies used to sell IT governance to the business
    • What worked and what did not work, lessons learned
    • Implementation roadmap for an IT Governance Program
    • How behavioral change was tackled
    • Practices that have shown their value to the business
  • Questions and answers.

Who Will Benefit:

  • IT senior managers and executives
  • IT governance and compliance professionals
  • Adviser, manager, employee or involved individual interested in IT governance
  • Individuals with IT strategy or governance experience
  • IT managerial experience will be helpful, but not necessary for this session
