IT4IT Forum Way of Working

The IT4IT Forum is continuously developing content for the next release of the standard and/or for the IT4IT Body of Knowledge (Guides, white papers, case studies, etc). The Standing Committees manage the flow of work through the Forum and out to the IT community. The content itself is developed by the IT4IT topical workgroups that are staffed by member volunteers who have passion and subject matter expertise. All committees and workgroups are led by and contributed to by members. If you would like to propose a new topical workgroup or get involved with any existing workgroup or committee, please complete the form here.
