Page 2 What is IT Governance? IT Governance is the system by which an organization's IT portfolio is directed and controlled. IT Governance describes: (a) the distribution of IT decision-making rights and responsibilities among different stakeholders in the organization, and (b) the rules and procedures for making and monitoring decisions on strategic IT concerns.
