Abstract [en]

Ensuring effective enterprise IT governance is a challenging task. There are numerous factors that need to be implemented, and their effectiveness is difficult to assess. At the same time effective enterprise IT governance is important as it is the single most important predictor of the value an organization generates from IT. Research in the field of IT governance effectiveness has traditionally investigated different ITG mechanisms functioning as enablers or inhibitors for IT success. However, for achieving IT success the fundamental goals of IT governance are needed to be fulfilled. This paper seeks on bridging this gap in the academic literature by reporting the results of a survey of 40 ITG experts on factors attaining fundamental goals of IT governance. The results are presented in a descriptive fashion and suggest that factors concerning involvement of board-level executives attain fundamental targets more effectively, while factors generally regarded as “hygienic factors” (e.g. time-efficiency) is regarded as less effective. The results also provides empirical input of potential relationship between factors and their underlying goals open for discussion and other researchers might find interesting hypotheses to test in their work.
