The ITx 2016 Programme may change without notice
IT governance is a predominantly enterprise IT level activity and with substantial frameworks that support it.
Yet over 97% of businesses in New Zealand are small and medium sized enterprises - how do they fare from a technology standpoint?
Hazel Jennings will provide practical advice on technology governance in SME's, drawn from her own experience as an IT professional and a board member, and augmented with recently completed research into technology governance in SMEs and charities at the University of Waikato.
She will explain the difference between operational IT governance and business IT governance before sharing the characteristics of successful IT governance in SME.
Many of Jennings criteria are applicable to charities and she will show how elements of COBIT can be used as boundary objects to strengthen IT governance in non-technical leaders in smaller organisation without an IT department.
