Whether an organizational formation exists for-profit, or not-for-profit; to exercise effective governance throughout an entity, the top-level oversight committee and senior executives must have a clear understanding of what to expect from an IT governance program. Logically, as defined by ISACA, IT governance is a sub-domain of enterprise governance. Based on this premise, if properly designed and deployed, IT governance should provide a generally accepted means for ensuring: information and communication requirements are strategically aligned with the not-for-profit’s designated mission, investments are value driven, and risks are managed judiciously. Thus, not-for-profit information dissemination effectiveness is measurable by the degree strategic synchronization fulfills the entity’s mission.
