Case Study: Problem 5

At the next monthly board meeting, Judy Harmon presented the updated and comprehensive disaster recovery and continuity plan. The board was pleased. John Black (CEO) then addressed the board:

“Judy and Ron have confirmed that our IT governance evaluation has been ongoing for 6 months. I agree with the rest of the board in applauding the positive progress that has been made and the work of the ITG consultant. My concern now, however, is that all we have to date are documents, papers, and plans. How do we move from a “nice ITG plan” to an implemented ITG system that is working well day in and day out? I would like to see some clear actionable items on how we are putting the ITG plan into action and how it will be updated on a continuous and ongoing basis.”
