IDC PeerScape: Digital Transformation Practices for IT Governance

This IDC study describes practices that help CIOs improve their approaches to more traditional IT/DX governance while adopting some new practices to improve its effectiveness. IDC's executive interview subjects have identified five best practices to support successful IT organizational transformation."IT/DX governance bodies are prone to entropy, as stakeholders miss meetings or send junior substitutes, discussions revolve around 'who is getting what' in the way of IT resources, and the focus turns to problem reporting and solving, not enterprise digital transformation," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "CIOs need to establish strong governance practices and policies and stick to them to ensure ongoing effectiveness of IT/DX governance."
