Course content

Module one introduces you to the COBIT framework, as well as Enterprise Governance of Information Technology (EGIT), a core tenet of corporate governance.

COBIT as a framework is intended to encompass all digital elements that an enterprise might use to achieve its goals – hence the focus on both information and technology (I&T). This module will teach you about the difference between governance and management, along with stakeholders and their roles within the COBIT product architecture.

COBIT 2019 is based on two sets of principles: those that refer to the core requirements of a governance system and those that can be used to create a governance system.

In this module, you will be introduced to the nine principles that underpin the COBIT framework.

In module 3 you will be introduced to the governance and management objectives of COBIT 2019. These help enterprises achieve clear, realizable results. You will find out how information and technology play a part in achieving goals. You will also uncover the basic concepts, the five domains of the Core Model, and the seven Governance Components that plug into each and every governance and management objective. Finally, you will find out about the Goals Cascade, as well as the focus areas and design factors that affect how a governance system is built.

Module 4 starts with an overview of the information structure – the COBIT core model – before moving on to discuss the 40 Governance and Management Objectives along with their purpose statements.

The detailed guidance in this module will also help you understand the relationship between the objectives and governance components in greater depth.

Module 5 moves on to performance management, what this means, and how you might manage both the performance of a process and other governance system components.

Concepts such as maturity and capability levels are also introduced, as well as how they can be used to assess how well a specific element is performing.

Module 6 covers the content that is brand new to COBIT. In this module, you will take a closer look at the impact of design factors and how they play a key part in the design and construction of a governance system.

Module 7 provides a thorough overview of the ‘COBIT Business Case’. The guidance here is generic and non-prescriptive for the sake of accommodating the different approaches and styles that may be adopted by enterprises when preparing a business case.

The module also includes practical writing tips as well as two example scenarios to support you in learning to apply COBIT practically.

Module 8 considers the practical side of implementing a governance system. Here you will look at the Implementation Guide in more detail, including the phases of the Implementation Lifecycle as well as the connection between the Design Guide and the Implementation Guide.

This course comes complete with one practice exam designed to simulate the conditions of the official COBIT 2019 Foundation examination. Candidates are encouraged to spend time reviewing and familiarizing themselves with each module, particularly before booking the COBIT 2019 certification exam.

As well as this exam, the course is packed with numerous revision modules and knowledge checks throughout.
