Abstract: Many researchers have dedicated their work in IT Governance, and numerous methods, techniques and tools for making decisions to align IT to a business strategy were proposed in the last decade. In the meantime, new digital business models developed rapidly and aligning business with IT has become more difficult than ever. Governance frameworks are widely used to reduce complexity in the decision-making process and organisations tend to use several topics related governance frameworks besides IT Governance. Different governance frameworks are related, dependent and interact under each other, and since they all have their own method of measurement and evaluation, the interaction suffers from a lack of data consistency or they do not take all dimensions of decision-making into account. Furthermore, the lack of consistency is caused by the definition of governance frameworks itself and leads to concurring goals among governing bodies. This paper proposes a design goal for a method of measurement by (1) critically reviewing the existing state of art of measurement and evaluation concepts of governance frameworks, by following a comprehensive review of the normative literature dealing with the measurement aspects of IT Governance, and (2) analysing a dataset (n=51) of a preliminary study done in spring 2017 with Swiss companies.
