This paper addresses the need for clear guidance on IT governance and its implementation based on the current lack of board level understanding of strategic IT-related issues. The paper briefly discusses a model that was developed to provide guidance to boards of directors on how to strategically direct and control IT i.e. the WHAT, WHO and HOW of IT Governance (WWH-ITG) Model. Then a set of implementation guidelines to facilitate the implementation of the WWH-ITG Model are introduced and discussed in detail. Through this various key aspects central to ensuring that IT governance is applied effectively in an organisation are highlighted.
