All rights reserved.COBIT ®5 Principles: Where Did They Come From?The fourth principle emphasizes that ecient and eectiveimplementation of GEIT requires a holistic approach thattakes into account several interacting components ormechanisms—termed “enablers” in COBIT—because theyinteract to support governance and management of enterpriseactivities and are interdependent.The challenge of implementing a holistic approach is relatedto the need for an organizational system, which is describedin strategic management literature as the way a rm gets itspeople to work together to carry out the business.18Suchorganizational systems require the denition and application,in a holistic manner, of structures (e.g., organizationalunits and functions) and processes (to ensure that tasksare coordinated and integrated), and attention to peopleand relational aspects (e.g., culture, values, joint beliefs).Enterprises are applying this organizational system theory toGEIT implementation by using a holistic mixture of structures,processes and other components or mechanisms.19,20COBIT 5 builds on these systemic insights with the concept ofenablers. Enablers are dened as factors that individually andcollectively inuence whether something will work—in thiscase, governance and management over enterprise IT. TheCOBIT 5 framework describes seven categories of enablers(gure 5)—of which Processes; Organisational Structures;and Culture, Ethics and Behaviour are most closely related tothe organizational systems concept. COBIT 5 complementsthese organizational systems enablers with other importantenablers: Principles, Policies and Frameworks; Information;Services, Infrastructure and Applications; and People, Skillsand Competencies.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
