This publication complements COBIT® 5 and contains a detailed reference guide to the processes defined in the COBIT 5 process reference model.
COBIT 5: Enabling Processes includes:
COBIT 5 Goals Cascade
Enterprises exist to create value for their stakeholders. Consequently, any enterprise will have value creation as a governance objective. Value creation means realising benefits at an optimal resource cost while optimizing risk. The goals cascade is important, because it allows the definition of priorities for implementation, improvement and assurance of governance of enterprise IT based on (strategic) objectives of the enterprise and the related risk.
COBIT 5 Process Model
The COBIT 5 process model includes a number (37) of governance and management processes; this set of processes is the successor to the COBIT 4.1, Val IT™ and Risk IT™ processes, and includes all processes required for end-to-end treatment of all governance and management of enterprise IT.
Process Reference Model
Developed based on best practices, standards and the opinion of experts. It is important to understand that the model and its contents are generic and not prescriptive, and it has to be adapted to suit the enterprise. Also, the guidance defines practices and activities at a relatively high level and does not describe how the process procedure is to be defined.
