Abstract

In order to obtain an understanding on how large organizations implement IT governance in a pragmatic way, six pilot cases were selected from different sectors. Case research is particularly appropriate for research within the IT area because researchers in this field often lag behind practitioners in discovering and explaining new methods and techniques (Benbasat, Goldstein, & Mead, 1987). This is certainly true for the concept of IT governance. The purpose of this case study research is to look for different IT governance elements in use and how they contribute to better IT governance within the organisation.
