To focus of anIT governance is to create an organizational foundation on the set of roles, responsibilities, and corporate actions and plans that details the step-by-step process in which the company can create a standard pattern of guided framework for its functions, this also includes the use of technology to create an effective system in which the interlaying philosophy, objectives, and goals of the organization can be founded on.

This plan is a bag part of any corporate institutions because by having this, also meant opening up to the opportunity to develop and grow across different variables that might affect the company in the future. Here are some important notes on which IT governance can be fully utilized in big businesses.

Reflect the Company Philosophy

One of the functions of a governance plan is for it to reflect the philosophy on which the company is founded on and also to keep intact the vision in which it is directed towards. Without a plan on how to govern an organization, especially a business institution, it would most likely fail to flourish in the first place. The corporate governance of IT itself holds the roles and responsibility of each stakeholder how their roles affect the process of the whole structure. 

Focus on Shareholder’s Perspective

It helps the company focus on the shareholder’s perspective in a way that it centres on the notion that for the company to flourish and continue it must be able to keep the confidence of the stakeholders, and that includes the employees that it holds. It helps redirect back the focal point of businesses and that is to earn not only for the sake of earning for itself, it must be able to earn so that the stakeholders could earn and profit as well.

In line with the Goal

The whole governance idea is set in parallel to the goal that the company has. The goal is not only limited to a certain number of years, the goals that big businesses create are long term goals which might encompass a whole lifetime for a person, but nevertheless a goal is always set in such a way that the stakeholders and the company will always benefit from the business even from a long-term basis.

Implement the Plan

Lastly, these plans are also used to evaluate on whether the companyhas the supposed methods and tools to implement its business model and the methods that it uses for its operation. Simply put, without a governance proposal it would be very difficult for businesses to execute and implement their plans.

The system itself is self-checking on whether it can theoretically execute a business plan. An example is if a company decides to create a product, the governance strategy itself can evaluate is such product is saleable, and if it can be produced in the company infrastructures and machineries, and are there people to buy these products.

Like a living organism each business entity must have a framework on which to work and function on so that it can effectively execute the plans that it has and that framework is the governance design.
