Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the existence and effects of different ITgovernance strategies on the operative level of manufacturing industries. Thestudy is based on a mixed research method including statistical analysisof questionnaire data and a qualitative analysis of interview material. Theoperational business unit that is being studied is maintenance and itsmanagement. Several types of IT governance strategies existed within thisbusiness unit according to the study, and the decentralised was the mostcommon. The different strategies had both a positive and negative impact onthe business unit, but the federal IT governance strategy seems to overcomesome of the problems in the others. The results indicate that there might beother characteristics worth testing than the ones used in this study, for instancethe size of the business unit.
