Integrated Governance

Is an approach to make your organization work better by creating a form of management that supports the various forms of governance and forms of planning. The literature review that you will be able to read by downloading the document from the provided link, deals with how Enterprise Architecture can enable an enterprise to achieve the vision of holistic management. Enterprise Architecture is therefore one of the major components of the paper and likewise is Coherency Management. The initial assumption is that by using Enterprise Architecture and Coherency Management that the enterprise is able to achieve competitive advantage since the executives, middle managers and employees will be able to get a better understanding of how the organization works and what it can do to align processes, resources and intelligence to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.

The paper defines integrated governance, and introduces a framework that most enterprises will be able to make use of to implement integrated governance. It is obvious that more forms of governance can be incorporated into the framework; however since it has been an academic study, I had to delimitate what forms of governance I had to deal with (otherwise it could be a rather long paper on various forms of governance that would be more or less relevant to include).

It is notable that the enterprise needs to adapt the framework for its specific context; otherwise it is very likely that the enterprise will not be able to gain any of the benefits that integrated governance as a concept can provide the enterprise with.

One of the most important aspects of the framework is the quality assurance feedback channels that needs to be established, since this is the only official approach to collecting the data needed to understand how the changes influences the enterprise.
