Barriers to the adoption of formal IT governance practice: A Malaysian case

Othman, Mohd Fairuz Iskandar (2016) Barriers to the adoption of formal IT governance practice: A Malaysian case. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


In spite of the numerous benefits suggested for organisations to adopt formal IT Governance (ITG) practice, research has shown that these practices show low levels of adoption. This research develops and empirically validates a theoretical model of barriers to formal ITG practice adoption. It advances our theoretical understanding of barriers to formal ITG practice adoption while providing insightful implications for organisations in their journey towards adoption of formal ITG practice.
