Through a practical approach to coaching, you actively develop your knowledge of IT management and governance and you gain a better understanding of the work methodology recommended by COBIT.
Inspired by COBIT 2019, promote, improve and strengthen IT governance by implementing a continuous improvement process focused and based on the application of a set of simple, effective and pragmatic good practices, adapted to the context of your organisation.
The activities described below are the different steps within the coaching process, applied to the IT Governance environment:
Understand the context and strategy of the organisation;
Define an initial scope / plan;
Assess the current situation through a review of information systems, policies and procedures;
Define and suggest pragmatic recommendations adapted to the specific context of the organisation;
Establish a roadmap for the management of these recommendations;
Provide support to the implementation of the roadmap.
IT practices are structured according to COBIT into 5 objective domains, presented below
|Govern||Determination of the decision-making mechanisms for the investment portfolio and the allocation of financial, human and technological resources. Establishing risk appetite.|
|Plan||Determination of IT management processes and establishment of roles and responsibilities. Definition of technology strategy, budgets and roadmap. Development of policies and related procedures.|
