An ITAM policy documents the requirements of your ITAM system and, once formally approved, ensures that you can enforce these requirements if the people, processes and tools that support the management system fail to meet these requirements. It is hard, if not impossible, to build an effective ITAM system without an enforceable policy in place.
By the end of this course you will understand why an approved ITAM policy is critical for successful ITAM. You will understand the different forms an ITAM policy can take, and consider whether your policy should document ‘as is’ or ‘to be’ requirements.
During the course, we will conduct a policy workshop to identify the requirements to be included in the policy and the final assignment will be to write your own ITAM policy OR perform a gap analysis with existing policies such as information security, procurement and the acceptable use policy.
During the workshop we will do a deep dive into the structure of an ITAM policy and consider what policy statements could be included in the policy.
Working with our expert trainers, you will also be able to define, refine and document the following:
- A policy document tailored to YOUR organisation OR
- A policy gap analysis for your existing policies
- A policy approval roadmap to help you get YOUR policy approved for implementation
We will study ITAM policies in detail during the workshop. Your homework is to draft a policy document OR perform a policy gap analysis that works for YOUR organisation, and we will feedback and review the documents you have created in the policy review session.
