Formatted abstract The highly publicized corporate failures worldwide have significantly raised the profile of information technology (IT) governance both in the academic and practitioner domains. In the wake of these events, IT practitioners have advocated a number of 'best practice' IT governance mechanisms to contribute towards increasing the overall level of IT governance within organizations. This thesis examines the relationship between the overall level of effective IT governance and five commonly advocated individual mechanisms of IT governance. Using a web-based survey instrument, data was collected from 80 members of the audit profession. The results of the study reveal significant positive relationships between the overall level of effective IT governance and the following three IT governance mechanisms: IT steering committees, involvement of senior management in IT, and corporate performance measurement systems. Ex-post sensitivity analyses reveal that the primary findings are qualitatively similar across internal auditors and external auditors, as well as information systems auditors (IS) and non-IS auditors.
