Aims to discuss the role of information technology (IT) governance in corporate strategy.
Examines the four elements of IT governance, including value delivery, managing risk, maintaining accountability, and measurement of ongoing programs and activities, in the context of a case study of a warship, the Vasa, commissioned by King Gustavus, that sank shortly after it sailed.
The legacy of the Vasa helps in understanding the elements of value, risk, and measurement in the broader context of governance and management. The Vasa illustrates the significance of alignment and architectural competency to an enterprise.
Shows that managements' commitment and involvement with IT development at the senior management level, the IT management level, and the project management level significantly enhances the probability of success.
