Track: CMMI On Board

Presentation Title: Leveraging COBIT 5 and CMMI

Presentation Summary: ISACA and CMMI have just released the COBIT 5/CMMI Practices Pathway Tool. The tool provides business IT practitioners with guidance on how to deliver additional value to stakeholders by strengthening process designs. Users will be able to utilize organizational resources more effectively, measure performance more accurately, and lower costs through stronger governance.

The COBIT 5/CMMI Practices Pathway Tool is bi-directional, allowing practitioners to connect individual practices or sets of practices from either COBIT 5 or CMMI and harmonize them with relevant practices from the other. You can search content by domain, process area, or practice.

This presentation will take you through understanding the structure of the tool, how it was built and what purpose it serves. The presenters will provide practical examples of using the tool and provide ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
