Corporate governance increasingly provides the context within which twenty-first century organisations have to assess and deal with their investments in, and risks to, their corporate information assets and the Information and Communications Technology (ICT, or just IT) infrastructure within which those information assets are collected, manipulated, stored and deployed. But what is corporate governance, and why is it important to the IT professional? Why is IT governance important to the company director, and what do directors of companies – both quoted and unquoted – need to know?
This book aims to do two things
- The first is to set out for managers, executives and IT professionals the practical steps necessary to meet today’s corporate and IT governance requirements.
- The second is to provide practical guidance on how board executives and IT professionals can navigate and deploy to best corporate and commercial advantage the numerous IT management and IT governance frameworks and standards – particularly ISO/IEC 38500 – that have been published over the course of the last 10 years. Each of these standards and frameworks has a potentially valuable role to play in the organisation; the challenge lies in integrating them so that each can deliver what it was designed to do, and do this within the context of an overarching framework (a ‘super framework’, or ‘meta-framework’) that enables each organisation to design IT governance to meet its own needs.
The Calder-Moir Framework (which is freely available to download from /p-942-it-governance-framework-toolkit.aspx) was developed specifically to help organisations manage and govern their IT operations more effectively, and to coordinate the sometimes wide range of overlapping and competing frameworks and standards. It also specifically supports implementation of ISO/IEC 38500, the new international standard for best practice IT governance.
Written by Alan Calder who is an international authority on IT Governance and, with Steve Moir, originated the innovative Calder-Moir IT Governance Framework.
