cope. It provides an implementation guide.
In this video, we're going to talk about Kobe IT principles to implement a governance program and recommendations.
Kobe provides guidance and recommendations for implementing an I T governance program within an organization.
Thes practices are important to ensure your i t governance is useful, comprehensive and remains relevant to the organization.
One guidance is not to separate business and I t related activities.
This is not a good practice to silo I t. As often the I T department plays a role in almost every department, depending on your organization.
Thus separating I t from business related activities does not allow i t to support the attainment of overall business objectives and goals that the enterprise desires.
Another guidance is to implement the I T governance program as an integral part of corporate governance in order to cover the business end to end and I t functional areas of responsibility.
In the first module, we went over how corporate governance and what that ISS.
It is a way in which to combine the interests of stakeholders into rules, policies and processes into an organization.
Corporate governance encompasses information governance and I t governance
Consequently, I t governance should be seen as an integral part of corporate governance to cover the business in a comprehensive manner.
Additionally, cope it guides that enterprises need to have an executive buy in to implement i t. Governance
Without executive buy in, you will not have adequate direction, time and resource is to meaningful e implement a governance program.
Thus, it's essential that executives realize and communicate the importance of this program and allocate inappropriate budget time and resource is for implementation.
Why do you think it's important to have executive buy in that specific to your business that maybe I didn't address
cope? It stresses the importance of program management as an integral part of the implementation lifecycle.
You will need a program manager that fulfills the overall design that addresses the governance and management objectives.
Without that, things may become unorganized, slipped through the cracks and can mean ultimately that the ICTY governance program is implemented
in a half manner or it doesn't fulfill the overall governance and management objectives that set by the organization.
Lastly, Kobets suggests that organization should empower business I t stakeholders and role players to take ownership of I T related governance and management decisions.
You may be able to get valuable insight and allow for the organization to adopt and adapt to the I T governance program company wide.
Empowering more people to make decisions can lead the company to have better insight as to how the program should be implemented.
In this video, we talked about guidance for a successful implementation of the Colbert Framework and the importance of each implementation recommendation.
