Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Firms with superior IT governance have more than 25% higher profits than firms with poor governance given the same strategic objectives. These top performers have custom designed IT governance for their strategies. Just as corporate governance aims to ensure quality decisions about all corporate assets, IT governance links IT decisions with company objectives and monitors performance and accountability. Based on a study of 250 enterprises worldwide, IT Governance shows how to design and implement a system of decision rights that will transform IT from an expense to a profitable investment.

Book News Annotation:

Weill and Ross, both affiliated with the Center for Information Systems Research, explain why firms with superior IT governance systems have 20 percent higher profits than firms with poor governance, and tell executives what their companies need to do to realize the value of their IT. Their guide shows how to design and implement a coordinated set of decision-making processes so that all managers, not just the CIO or CTO, use IT to achieve the company's strategic and financial goals. They include examples from organizations such as DuPont, MetLife, Delta Air Lines, and the UK Metropolitan Police.
