Consultancy in IT-governance

IT-governance is the responsibility of the board of directors and
executive management. It is an integral part of enterprise governance
and consists of the leadership and organisational structures and
processes that ensure that the organisation’s Information Technology sustains and extends
the organisation’s strategies and objectives.

IT capability is directly related to the long term consequences of decisions made by top management. Traditionally, board-level executives deferred key IT decisions to the company's IT professionals. This cannot ensure the best interests of all stakeholders unless deliberate action involves all stakeholders. IT governance systematically involves everyone: board members, executive management, staff and customers. It establishes the framework used by the organization to establish transparent accountability of individual decisions, and ensures the traceability of decisions to assigned responsibilities.
