The effectiveness of IT governance is dependent on those who govern. The governing structure’s ability to quickly respond to IT issues requires a clear ownership of responsibility and decision-making authority within the governance structure. IT governance is a highly collaborative process requiring interdisciplinary participation. The IT governance framework is a cross-functional team consisting of representatives from administration, schools and departments across the university and IT leaders.
