[TW] IT documents, audit and leaders

IT documents comes with different names such as the following: - Manual or handbook, - Policies and procedures, - Management systems, - Project plans. In the real world we have various names with unique descriptions and purposes when in fact they could be made to do a uniform direction for which actions are based for the entire IT initiatives, probably the longest in IT lifecycle is operation. The problem is our inclination on something else which is wrong. IT remains an IT area. Business remains a business area. The same problem is carried out when we conduct IT audit. Most audit are missing the gists in which IT is being used by businesses. We once said that an effective IT audit is conducted by IT people themselves but there is something wrong with that even. Business and accounting people have been doing it with a different bias and preconceived notions which doesn't make the cut for IT direction and audit respectively. Leaders play the same game and so the problem continues an

Important notes for all training programs

Reservation requires full payment. It must be done a week prior to the conduct of training or depending on availability as schedule is approved on a first-come first-serve basis. Withdrawal, if necessary, must be done 2 days before the agreed upon schedule for full refund. 1 day before schedule will be 50% refund. No withdrawal and refund after the first day for training programs with fixed schedules including up to 5-day delivery, straight or staggered.  Official/collection receipts are issued.     

Certificate of attendance for participants and certificate of appreciation for on-site/private hosting organization will be provided. Training materials will be in hardcopies, by default, unless it is requested to be in softcopies when reservation is made. License for softcopies will be issued to participants, even if fees were paid by, their organization, unless instructed otherwise.     

Participants will be furnished of major content changes and updates (technical evolutions run off fast, we need to know what it is and how it is affecting our business, we simply cannot missed that), if any, for one (1) year with the course they have attended. It will be communicated and provided via email.     

Occasional and quick Q&A’s via group/class mailing list or direct email and maybe a not so often face-to-face or get together for consultation strongly encouraged. So, shoot whenever you have burning question, unanswerable by the unstructured web of mostly public information or unsatisfied by your colleagues’, and that cannot pass until next time. Life’s so short, don’t wait, work and focus on it. You know, we are here.

Expressed information is key

It must be a great deal, nowadays. Though, not easy to accomplish and as easy as we say it, not impossible to re/construct it considering all the resources being wasted and ruined unwittingly, as the most probable causes ever.
