Despite the increasing importance of information technology in firms, the extent to which IT governance are established varies widely across the firms. To perform desirably the role of IS needed in most companies, high level of IT governance and the effective management should precede. However, the impacts of such activities and management on the IT governance have not been empirically examined in depth until now. Thus, building on the theory of governance and the institutionalization, the research model and the hypotheses of the study were formed and then empirically tested. The study used a survey of senior IT managers from 108 firms in order to examine hypothesized relationship among the following constructs: strategic alignment, IT governance committee, IT planning, EA, PMO, SLM, IT compliance, incident management, IS effectiveness, visibility, and corporate performance. A structural equation model is developed by using LISREL to assess the relative effects and interrelationship among these constructs. The results show that strategic alignment has positive influence on IT governance committee and IT planning. IT governance committee, IT planning, SLM, incident management from IT governance activities have positive effects on IS effectiveness, whereas IT compliance has a negative effect on IS effectiveness. Visibility is positively influenced by IT planning, EA, SLM. IT compliance, and both IS effectiveness and visibility have positive effects on corporate performance.
