Governance Efficiency Assessment

Boards and executive management have long known the need for enterprise and corporate governance. However, most are beginning to realize that there is a need to extend governance to information technology as well, and provide the leadership, organisational structures and processes that ensure that the enterprise’s IT sustains and extends the enterprise’s strategies and objectives.

If Information Technology is a part of your business, governance now extends to and includes information and the IT infrastructure that supports your business. Shareholder expectations of boards, and of the individual directors on boards, are clear:

  1. The board of directors will actually direct the management of the company, including strategic and IT business plans and fundamental structural changes;
  2. The board will see to the hiring of competent and honest business and IT managers;
  3. The board will understand the business of the firm and develop and monitor a business and IT strategy;
  4. The board will monitor the managers as they carry out the strategy and the operations of the company;
  5. When making a business decision, the board will develop a thorough understanding of the transaction and act in good faith, on an informed basis, and with a rational business purpose;
  6. The board will operate with basic honesty, care, and loyalty; and
  7. The board will take good-faith steps to make sure the company complies with the law.

These IT governance expectations demand an appropriate IT governance framework. That can be difficult and time-consuming to do from scratch. Based on original research, publications, resources and symposia on IT governance from the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) and in collaboration with ISACA, we offer you the assessment of your IT Governance processes to understand the current level of efficiency and to provide you with recommendations where and how your company might be able to improve the ability to create value out of their investment. In addition, please take a look at our whitepaper “Adding Governance Structures - Adding Value” which you can find in the download section at the bottom of the navigation bar.

Our Country offices in London, Hamburg and Milan will be looking forward to your individual requests and can help you in defining the ideal package for your individual requirements.
