As many of you know I am on the Committee of the Wellington Chapter of ISACA. Below is the announcement for a Governance Event we have organized for 11 September. It promises to be a good day, at a very reasonable cost.


The Positive Impact of Good Governance

ISACA – Wellington Chapter – Forthcoming Governance Event

Our first major governance event for 2009 – 11 September 2009

The Chapter is pleased to announce this important seminar dealing with The Positive Impact of Good Governance on projects and their success.

This seminar builds upon the successful governance event we held in October 2008. It will focus on amongst other issues:-


Project Lifecycle - representation

What are the key issues in success/failure and where does governance impact?

Are there warning signs of failure? If so, why are they ignored? Does this have organizational culture implications?

Are PMO’s effective or a process sop? Where does the PMO fit as part of a good governance framework?

Do governance processes tick the compliance box, but impede the outcome?

What is good governance      in this context?

The seminar is built around the Project Lifecycle and seeks to explore aspects of these topics at various stages of the Lifecycle.

The seminar opens with a scene setting and provocative keynote address from well known industry identity Marcel van den Assum.

The programme will combine presentations with interactive elements such as case studies, video presentations and discussions.

Key takeaway from the day will be an enhanced understanding of where and how Good Governance positively impacts Project Success

Full programme details will be announced very soon.
