Now we're going to move on to component variations
00:04
in this video. We're going to talk about the impact of the second design factor, the impact of component variations and an example.
00:14
Components are required to achieve governance and management objectives.
00:18
Remember, components are the seven enablers such as policies and procedures, processes, people, skills and competencies, organizational structures, culture and behavior, information and services and applications.
00:33
Designed factors can influence the overall importance of certain components and make other components not as important for the overall implementation of an objective.
00:46
Let's take an example of a health care company that is highly regulated due to the nature of handling PH. I or patient health information.
00:55
Since this organization is in a highly regulated industry, it will naturally put more importance on certain components like policies and procedures and organizational structures.
01:07
Consequently, there will be more importance on security policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of information.
01:15
Additionally, the role of compliance officer will have more an important role as a component than others.
01:23
Thus, the design factor will influence the importance of certain components like policies and procedures and organizational roles.
01:30
What roles do you think will be most important for your prioritized objectives,
01:36
Or is there another component that will be more important than having organizational structures in place?
01:46
So in this video, we talked about how component variations affect the design of a governance program, and we went over a healthcare example.
