COBIT® 5 Assessor

You will learn how to conduct a formal Process Capability Assessment, how to utilise it to enable business goals, how to prioritise improvement initiatives, and how to spot possibilities for enhancing the governance and management of IT assets in the COBIT 5 Assessor course.

The training programme serves as the foundation for evaluating an organization's process capabilities in comparison to the COBIT 5 Process Reference Model (PRM). This methodology assists IT leaders in gaining C-level and board member buy-in for change and improvement efforts since it is evidence-based and enables a reliable, consistent, and repeatable way to assess IT process capabilities.

The results of the assessment allow for the identification of process capability. Process improvement, adding value to the company, gauging the accomplishment of present or future business objectives, benchmarking, consistent reporting, and organisational compliance can all be accomplished with their help. Practical exercises and interesting case-based scenarios are used to supplement the training.

If a practitioner applicant is successful, they will be allowed to apply for full ISACA certification, become assessors or lead assessors, and provide additional documentation of their capabilities.
