    Abstract

    Despite all efforts in the last decennium, IT governance continues to be a "top 10" issue for CIO’s. The goal of our research program is to determine which disciplines and frameworks are used for IT governance and which streams in IT governance literature do best align with current practices. This study describes the results of a literature review and Delphi study of IT governance effectiveness and maturity and assesses the (mis)match between IT governance theory and practice. The Delphi study was conducted with a group of 14 CIO’s of mid-sized and larger organizations. Based on the literature review and Delphi study, results show that six IT governance streams can be distinguished. We conclude that these six streams are an effective way to study the variety of IT governance practices. The study further concludes that there still exists a mismatch between IT governance theory and practice.
