This title provides clear and readily applicable guidance to corporate board members on the involvement of boards of directors in information technology (IT) governance. Specifically, it demonstrates ways in which board members can execute IT duties effectively. Specific tools such as a roadmap towards digital transformation and a board-level dashboard for digital strategy and oversight are also offered. While organizations are increasingly dependent on IT for the creation of business value, the evidence seems to indicate that boards of directors are not as involved in IT-related strategic decision-making and control as they should be. Research shows that high levels of board-level IT governance, regardless of existing IT needs, will improve organizational performance. This book provides unique insights into the inner workings of a specific board of directors group, with a focus on its IT governance structures and processes. AutorentextSteven De Haes
