    Hi,

    well your question is a little bit unspecific. What kind of research are you doing? Academic or in a company? What exactly do you want to do and where are the problems?

    I think first you have to define what you mean by IT Governance and then identify the IT Governance processes. A score card can be developed afterwards.

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    Have you checked these articles? You haven't stated anything about the theoretical approach you are employing. Governance is also a form of power. You might to check the inter-functional or inter-group communication. In IS litearture there is some.
