Adapting IT Governance Frameworks using Domain Specific Requirements Methods: Examples from Small & Medium Enterprises and Emergency Management
IT Governance methods and frameworks have been applied in most large for-profit organizations since these enterprises realize the benefits of IT Governance for their business. However, former research and the authors' own surveys show that frameworks such as ITIL and COBIT are not very well established in Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) as well as in Emergency Management (EM) organizations. Thus, they investigated what kind of barriers can be the cause for the low adoption rate. These results built the basis for their Domain Specific Engineering (DSE) approach.
