Governance must be established across silos as an efficient IT will not work unless all departments follow the core processes and policies. Governance must be established to communicate any policies that must be followed, provide tools to enable compliance, provide visibility of compliance procedures and mitigate the risk in deviations from the policies.
IT governance must tie into the corporate governance if IT is to be seen as an enabler of the business.
Questions to ask yourselves
- Have you defined rules/ guiding principles so that compliance can be checked against?
- Does authority exist to enforce compliance?
- Is IT governance seen as an enabler of success?
