ISO/IEC 38500 the IT Governance Standard A Pocket Guide by Alan Calder

In the twenty-first century, IT governance has become a much-discussed topic among IT professionals. It is not well understood by senior managers, company directors, board members and chairmen which is a pity, because IT governance is a key topic for exactly these people. The emergence of ISO/IEC 38500 the international standard for the corporate governance of information and communication technology puts boards around the world in a position from which they can take effective action to apply core governance principles to their information and communication technology. This essential pocket guide will help you to understand both this new standard and the complex area of IT governance. Key features of this pocket guide include: * An overview of the ISO/IEC 38500 standard * Framework for good IT governance * Project governance * The Calder-Moir Framework
