The ISACA EuroCACS 2018 conference, the top conference for IS audit and security professionals, took place in Edinburgh, Scotland.

BSMimpact’s Daniel Merriott delivered a presentation on “COBIT & SFIA as Organisational Design Tools” which focused on how COBIT can be leveraged to help with operating model design, acting as an integrator of other processes and methodologies such as ITIL, SIAM, PRINCE, etc.  When combined with SFIA, both the roles and skills needed by a current or future operating model can be defined.

The feedback from the attendees at Daniel’s session ranked his presentation extremely highly, scoring significantly above average for all questions. Attendees were provided information allowing them to:

  • understand how to map between COBIT and SFIA in a meaningful way
  • use COBIT as a framework to integrate other process frameworks in operating model design
  • validate organisation positions against the capabilities needed in an operating model
  • build a consistent view of the skills needed to deliver an operating model, and identify any skill gaps that need managing

Daniel’s slides are provided here, and we’d be delighted to provide more information or discuss how we can help you and your organisation in this area.
