To be most effective, companies must manage their IT resources and use them in their governance structure. So there is a defined difference between IT management and IT governance. If a company wants to grow and be successful, it must not only manage its IT resources, but also use those resources throughout the company as part of the governance structure. IT governance implies a system in which all stakeholders, including the board, internal customers and related areas such as finance, have the necessary input into the decision making process, thus preventing a single stakeholder, typically IT, [from] being blamed for poor decisions. It also prevents users from later complaining that the system does not behave or perform as expected.
