M. Erskine, P. Gonzalez, D. Nedbal - The Role of IT Steering Committees in Attaining Effective IT Governance - Proceedings of the 24th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2018 Proceedings), New Orleans, Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika, 2018, pp. 1
Information Technology Steering Committees (ITSCs) serve to lead, coordinate and provide direction regarding specific IT-related projects through the formation of forums involving stakeholders representing different interests and perspectives from within the organization. While the topic has been studied for more than two decades (e.g., Karimi et al., 2000; Kappelman et al., 2013; Luftman et al., 2017), academics and practitioners continue to report mixed results concerning the ability of these committees in enabling effective information technology (IT) governance. In order to contribute to this debate, we aim to identify specific areas where ITSCs can most effectively leverage the processes of IT governance. Specifically, a structured literature review exploring how ITSCs enable effective IT governance in organizations was conducted as an initial phase of this research-in-progress.
