When effectively implemented and facilitated, IT governance helps organizations ensure that they are allocating their technology resources to the most critical projects and keeping IT objectives in alignment with business objectives and priorities.

An IT Governance program oversees and guides technology activities performed throughout the enterprise, including:

  • Developing, monitoring, and maintaining IT Strategic Plan initiatives
  • Ensuring an organization’s strategic direction is aligned with changing business and operational needs
  • Prioritizing new projects in annual work plans
  • Reviewing progress on technology projects and initiatives
  • Guiding technology policy
  • Encouraging effective collaboration between all business units and IT

Information technology governance is vital for organizations that need to obtain the highest possible return for their investment in technology.

IT governance is about making sound investment decisions that enable organizations to manage information effectively and efficiently.  But successful implementation of governance can be elusive for many organizations.
