Information technologies are inextricably interwoven into every aspect of an organization’s operations -- its products, services, and business processes, and its relationships with customers, employees, business partners, and other stakeholders. At the same time, IT and IT-enabled organizational innovations continue unabated (e.g., recent innovations around mobile, social, cloud computing technologies).

This makes the effective governance and control of information, systems, and the IS function critical for an organization’s success and growth, and an important responsibility of IS leadership. Leadership must put in place structures and processes to protect the organization against IT-related risks such as data security and privacy risks, technical risks, operational risks, regulatory compliance risks, and financial risks. Critical decisions need to be made to maximize the value and contribution of an organization’s IT resources, including organization of the IS function, sourcing decisions (at all levels), and decisions related to the management of an increasingly complex web of relationships with vendors, outsourcers, and service providers as well as with business units and executives.  

The IS Governance and Control Track aims to generate new knowledge and foster scholarly conversations around IT governance, control, and management practices that enable IS practitioners to use IT resources to achieve more favorable risk/return positions for their organizations.
 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • IS Leadership: creation of effective structures, processes, and accountability for IS leadership including the distribution of power and decision rights and the flow of information between decision authorities  
  • IS Control: control of IT projects; control portfolios, dynamics of control, outcomes of control choices
  • IS Governance: structures and processes of IT governance, accountability and responsibility for IT, Performance effects of IT governance mode choices, New IT governance models for complex, hypercompetitive settings
