Anybody that is involved in the management and governance of information within their organisation.

You must obtain a free, downloadable, PDF copy of the COBIT 5 Introductory book from the ISACA website. It would be extremely useful to bring a printed copy to the course as a reference as well. As each copy is individually registered to delegates you must do this yourself, we are not allowed to reproduce the copyright material under the ISACA licence.
You should pay special attention to the 5 principles, the 7 enablers and, within the process enabler, the 5 process areas. It is anticipated that could take 5 hours of pre-course study.
