Successful implementation of change requires good governance as well as good management.  So what’s the difference? This course refers   to   international standard ISO 38500 for Corporate Governance of IT together   with the OGC Best Practice framework for Portfolio, Programme and Project Management to   clarify what good governance of change is, and how it correlates to good management and execution.

The purpose of this course is to identify and investigate what constitutes good governance of change.   Course delegates will gain insight and understanding regarding how to apply good governance, exercise overall control and make the key decisions while also delegating day-to-day management of change to the appropriate programme and project managers.

The result is improved performance in achieving beneficial change within an organisation, and improved effectiveness and efficiency of senior managers’ time.
