Tasks regarding IS-strategy implementation can be allotted to the scope of IT-Governance. However, literature scans reveal a lack of guidance on how these tasks are to be accomplished. Unfortunately, most strategies fail during this step as they receive no proper implementation due to a lack of control, i.e. the ability to direct the IS-strategy implementation by knowing actions to be taken, how to proceed and to envisage outcomes of implementation processes. Therefore, the contribution of this research in progress is an artifact that supports the IT-Governance control process. The proposed artifact is based on knowledge sharing and implemented by an ontology. It is validated by an industry case. Additionally, participants were interviewed to assess their perceived usefulness of the artifact. The results indicate a broad appreciation of the approach.
