Description

Many organizations are concerned about growing their direct investments in digital technologies and going through a digital transformation (DT) that offers value creation opportunities. It has been found that IT governance (ITG) plays an important role in organizations' digital initiatives. Previous studies have identified ITG structures, processes, and relational mechanisms to increase the firms’ performance. However, the traditional ITG mechanisms might no longer be valid in this digital era. Unfortunately, few studies have investigated this area. Therefore, a systematic literature review was performed to identify the ITG mechanisms that influence DT. During the review process, 46 articles were selected from top-rank journals and conference proceedings and analyzed. The process revealed 28 ITG mechanisms that influence DT. The study contributes to both research and practice, providing researchers with the ITG mechanisms that influence DT and informing practitioners on which ITG mechanisms to focus on towards a successful DT.
