Golden Marzipan - ICT Good Governance Framework

Assessment Key

How to use this assessment tool

This framework is voluntary and we intend it to be used for discussion, engagement, education and assessment. If it helps, please use it at your discretion and adjust it to your organisation’s own approach to governance. However, the further away you move from our overall framework, the less easy it is the benchmark with others.

There is no pass or fail to the standards. We think a more objective test is to assess the “maturity” of your ICT governance.  We think a more objective test is to assess the “maturity” of your ICT governance. We have created a maturity scale with 5 levels ranging from unaware (worst) to effective (best). We provided other descriptive words to help you assess which level you are. We recommend you assess each standard or statement in each standard against to scale and take look at the averages, patterns and trends that emerge.
