Frameworks, Standards and Models - What's Out There and Which Should I Use?
In the IT Governance environment there are multiple frameworks, models and standards to choose from. A challenge for most organizations is simply understanding what all of these are, and which ones are applicable or appropriate for them. Some common questions include: If we’re using ITIL, should we consider COBIT? How does Kepner Trego fit with ITIL? Will using Six Sigma compete with ITIL’s CSI? How does ISO 20000 leverage ITIL? In this insightful presentation on Frameworks, Standards, and Certifications explore the many models that are available today: what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. We’ll look at the essential information as well as the applicability of the following: ITIL, COBIT, SIX SIGMA, ISO20000, KEPNER TREGO, PRINCE2, AGILE, and TIPA to name a few.
