Abstract [en]

IT Governance models represent ideals for how a collection of practices or mechanisms shall enhance the achievement of IT/business alignment in the organisation. In practice IT Govern-ance (ITG) models are interpreted and adapted to get the work done. In this paper we suggest an evaluation method for comparing an ideal ITG model (the model-in-concept) with the cor-responding use of the model in daily operations (the model-in-use). Theoretically we have approached the development of the ITG evaluation method from a deployment perspective meaning that a model first is developed and described by model developers and thereafter interpreted, adapted and used in the organisational context. Further, we have applied the con-cept of model rationale in order to express the logic of the model-in-concept as intended by the model developers. In our action research study we show how we have developed and test-ed the ITG evaluation method as part of an evaluation of the deployment and use of an ITG model in a large healthcare organisation. Our findings suggests that the evaluation method give support for in depth evaluation, dialog and learning concerning the complex logic of an ITG model-in-concept and model-in-use.
