IT Governance Structure
IT governance is concerned with who makes which decisions, who provides inputs and analyzes the issues, who sets priorities, and who settles disputes when there is no clear consensus. IT governance is concerned with the whole IT enterprise, not just the central IT organization.
IT governance is ultimately concerned with the ability to conduct institution-wide IT activities:
1. Can we develop important IT policies that apply throughout the institution?
2. Can we implement important IT decisions that apply throughout the institution?
3. Can we coordinate the activities of IT personnel effectively throughout the institution?
