Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (4 November 2010)—The IT Governance Institute (ITGI)—a nonprofit, independent research arm of global membership association ISACA—has launched Taking Governance Forward, a free online resource that provides a dynamic way for people to learn the latest on governance and join the debate on how to make it work for their organizations.
Taking Governance Forward encourages collaboration, creates a common definition of governance and provides a comprehensive, yet simple-to-use, overview of governance. Its practical tools and innovative “governance on a page” concept offer clear guidance for implementing effective governance. Features include:
- Discussion forums
- Common agreed-to definitions
- Mapping details
- Diagrams to illustrate the concepts
“Taking Governance Forward is an excellent resource for senior executives and practitioners,” said Emil D’Angelo, CISA, CISM, international president of ISACA and ITGI. “Executives will benefit from the strategic guidance and one-page modeling of governance, and those charged with building and implementing governance frameworks will value the mappings and implementation guidance.”
Taking Governance Forward was led by a team of global subject matter experts covering a wide range of industries, experience levels and job titles.
“The online resources have been peer-reviewed and early users have found them to be extremely valuable,” said D’Angelo. “Now, ITGI looks forward to an engaging discussion with the wider governance community through Taking Governance Forward.”
