AN AGREED IT GOVERNANCE AND CONTROL FRAMEWORK IS REQUIRED The framework needs to be supported by an effective communication and awareness campaign so that objectives are understood and the practices are complied with. Incentives should be considered to motivate adherence to the framework. Pay attention to devolved decentralized IT organizations to ensure a good balance between centrally driven policy and locally implemented practices. Avoid too much bureaucracy.

TRUST NEEDS TO BE GAINED FOR THE IT FUNCTION (IN HOUSE AND/OR EXTERNAL) For IT Governance to work, the suppliers of IT services and know-how need to be seen as professional, expert and aligned to customer requirements. Trust has to be developed by whatever means including awareness programs, joint workshops, and the IT Director acting as a bridge between the business and IT.

MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS WILL ENSURE OBJECTIVES ARE OWNED AND MONITORED Creation of an IT scorecard will underpin and reinforce achievement of IT Governance objectives. Creation of an initial set of measures can be a very good way to raise awareness and initiate an IT Governance programme. The measures used must be in business terms and be approved by stakeholders.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
