New IT governance standard

New IT governance standard

Governance of IT enabled projects will support governance leaders to successfully guide major information technology projects.


On the release of its publication in December, CEO of Standards Australia, Dr Bronwyn Evans, said AS/NZS 8016 had been prepared to set out how significant IT projects can benefit through the use of appropriate governance frameworks and principles.

‘As the world we live in continues to change rapidly, organisations need to consider how they can deliver effectively … while investing in technology for the future.

‘Organisations undertaking significant IT projects will find this the ‘go-to’ document when it comes to linking governance and management.’
