Transformational change often means taking on increasingly large and complex ICT projects – and equally increasing concerns around the risk of project failure.
This course examines the rationale for ICT strategy and the reasons why an organisation might need a governance framework. Key areas explored include: market trends that could enable or disrupt an organisation’s services; the impact of technology changes on human capital; and key risks, constraints and cost implications associated with technology choices.
It also examines factors that are critical to the successful implementation of large public ICT projects and considers the methods, tools, techniques and skills needed to be able to positively influence a project’s success.
On completion, you will be able to:
- Develop ICT strategy aligned to organisational strategy
- Describe different types of ICT governance frameworks and the support they provide
- Identify risks and create a risk management plan related to technology acquisition and ICT projects
- Manage key stakeholders, provide project assurance and maintain project control

- Aligning the ICT strategy with the organisational strategy
- Importance of good ICT governance
