IT policies are general written statements or understandings that prescribe organizational choices. Entity-centric policies typically impose guidelines enabling the execution of fairly routine judgments, consistent with current goals. Policy activation enables leadership, authority, motivation, communication, coordination, innovation, and change. Top-level entity management establishes policies as advisories for middle-level and lower-level management decision making. Therefore, it can be said, IT policies decrease the risk of managerial failure due to undefined expectations.
