What constitutes true adoption of COBIT® 5? Is it a minimum condition that at least one principle of COBIT 5 is adopted for true adoption of COBIT 5? To answer this question, one must look at COBIT 5’s principles, in other words, its raison d'être. The five principles of COBIT 5 are Meeting Stakeholder Needs, Covering the Enterprise End-to-End, Applying a Single Integrated Framework, Enabling a Holistic Approach, and Separating Governance From Management. This article focuses on the Covering the Enterprise End-to-end and the Separating Governance From Management principles, or more specifically, how to enhance alignment of business and IT embodying the concept described by figures 1, 2 and 3 to address the questions stated previously: Is it a true adoption of COBIT 5 to simply change the processes of COBIT® 4 into those of COBIT 5 as the basis of controls?

RE: COBIT Focus -Navigating I/O Flows/Networks to Enhance the Governance Management Cycle

This must be an interesting article. I am waiting for the full article.
Driving COBIT adoption in an organisation is by no means an easy project. 
1. How do you measure success (or failure) of such a project, 
2. What are the parameters one needs to consider while evaluating the success (or failure)
3. After successful adoption, continuous monitoring and evaluation of the benefits/effectiveness of COBIT is vital, does one require a dedicated team for this?

RE: COBIT Focus -Navigating I/O Flows/Networks to Enhance the Governance Management Cycle

Dear Mr. Simiyu, Thank you for comment to my article. You are the first commentator of it. I agree with you that adoption of COBIT is not easy task for any enterprise. The purpose of my article is to share good practices or ideas with IT governance professionals. For your questions, I tentatively answer as following: 1.2 Depend on setting of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for GEIT. If an enterprise hope to adopt COBIT5, it should set governance level KPIs, not mere individual control level. I think they may be certain indicators for IT effectiveness or contribution for enterprises' whole performance from business case analysis as I quoted in my article. Also I think the concept of "Goals Cascade" which COBIT5 suggests help one who are seeking such indicators. 3. Yes, off course. An audit committee and/or Internal Audit section of enterprises should independently and dedicatedly have responsibility for monitoring and evaluating the benefits/effectiveness of adoption of COBIT. I'm looking forward to make further discussion with you on the full version of my article. Regards Makoto Miyazaki
