This study is an attempt to approach the topic of IT governance processes more systematically; what are the central processes and in what contexts are they most important? In particular, we are interested in what types of IT governance relationships that these processes are deemed important and used by organizations today. To address this question the Delphi method will be employed. The Delphi method was developed by RAND to gain consensus amongst experts on a particular topic matter. The technique involves using sequential surveys and repeated interaction with experts until there is some convergence in opinions. In this case, IT executives in both the public and private will be consulted. The process will first build up a list of central process mechanisms. Then the subsequent surveys will be used to rank these processes according to the types of IT governance relationship involved.
