The wide use of technology and the high technology innovation have arisen strategic opportunities from ICT investments. To support the strategic role of technology different ICT governance practices and frameworks have been designed. This paper makes a comparison between two case studies. The principal source of evidence has been the interview. It has been structured to evaluate the ICT governance maturity level of an organization through the answers given by its principal decision makers. The first interviewees have been two CIOs. They came respectively from a public and a private Italian organization. The surprising conclusion is that different motivations have shown the same barriers against ICT governance for both the organizations. In this paper, after some considerations on the research background, method and purpose, we make a comparison between the two CIOs points of view. Then we give our first findings and their motivations. They represent a starting point for a future analytical generalization.
