IT Governance - COBIT

Information Technology has become pervasive and plays an increasingly significant role in organizations. Our approach towards the assessment of organizations' IT Process capabilities and its subsequent improvement assist organizations in achieving their objectives for the governance and management of IT. This approach ensures that IT can continually provide benefit to the organization by optimizing resource, minimizing risk and thereby ensuring the strategic objective of value creation. Our four (4) phased approach which is based on COBIT 5 include:

  • Diagnostics: This phase involves project planning, using an assessment scoping methodology to define the scope of the assessment  based on identifying relevant business drivers for IT, and the conduct of a rigorous assessment of organizations' IT Process capabilities based on the COBIT 5 Process Assessment Model (PAM) and ISO/IEC 33002:2015, Information Technology—Process assessment. The targeted capability level for each IT Process is also defined and compared with the current capability level for each IT Process.
  • Design: This involves the development of an IT Process Improvement Blueprint and Roadmap based on the IT Process Assessment results which illustrate the as-is status of the selected IT Processes. Actionable improvement practices and activities for the Governance and Management of each of the selected IT Processes are recommended where deficiencies or gaps may exist between the current and targeted capability levels.
  • Implementation: This involves providing detailed guidance and project management support for establishing feasible and practical solutions for the implementation of the recommendation specified in the IT Process Improvement Blueprint and Roadmap. The improvement practices and activities for the selected IT Processes are prioritized into; immediate tactical, medium term strategic and long term game-changing for the purpose of implementation. This phase also involves communication and awareness and project monitoring systems to ensure that recommendation are implemented.
  • Compliance and Mock Assessment: This phase involves the review of the overall success of the IT Process improvement initiative based on the transition of the implemented management and governance practices and activities into normal business operations. Performance metrics are used to monitor the achievement of IT Process improvements and provide details of continuous improvement actions by focusing on the targeted capability level of each of the IT Processes as against the performance of the implemented practices and activities.
