Evaluating a Conceptual Framework for Implementing IT Governance: A Case of Uganda’s Higher Institutions of Learning
The reliance on IT in day-to-day organisational activities raises concern about how to deal with its increasing complexity. Managing IT necessitates implementing IT governance to realise the benefits of IT use. However, there are inadequate and suitable frameworks to implement IT governance. For Higher Institutions of Learning (HILs) in Uganda, the case is not different, so there is need to provide a framework to implement IT governance in Uganda’s HILs. This paper, therefore, applies design science research principles to develop and evaluate a conceptual framework for implementing IT governance in HILs in the context of Uganda (IGHU). The evaluated conceptual framework was developed in an earlier study. The evaluation methods used were case study and expert opinion which were based on understandability, ease of use, usefulness, and completeness. Results showed the framework satisfactorily implemented IT governance in Uganda’s HILs.
