In this paper, various definitions of IT Governance and its elements are reviewed. It seems that generally, there is no big difference in definitions and the elements of IT Governance among researchers. However, it is found that some variables which are not appropriate for its definition were used in many IT Governance research. It is also found that IT Governance research in foreign countries have been focused on structure, process, and relational mechanism. I think that the primary goal of IT Governance should be building an effective IT management system. If desirable structure and principles for IT management are established and observed strictly, we can expect desirable behavior in IT management. As a result, expected outcomes and benefits through IT investment could be possibly realized. Therefore, IT Governance research should be focused on building IT Governance systems. This paper suggests a framework for the future IT Governance research.
