The Politics of University IT Decision Making
Process and Politics: IT Governance in Higher Education – Key Findings by Yanosky (Educause, 2008) provides insight into how universities make decisions about IT purchasing and projects. The work draws heavily on Peter Weill and Jeanne Ross' "IT Governance: How Top Performers Manage IT Decision Rights for Superior Results" (2004). The report also mentions the standard ISO/IEC 38500:2008, "Corporate governance of information technology" as well as ITIL. Curiously there appears to be no mention of green ICT or corporate social responsibility.
