Calder-Moir IT Governance Framework
The Calder–Moir IT Governance framework is a Meta model for coordinating frameworks and organizing IT governance (Calder and Moir, 2009) providing structure guidance on approaching IT Governance (IT governance, n.d.). Using this framework, organization can get maximum benefit from all the other frameworks and standards (IT governance, n.d.).
It consists of six quadrants. Each of these quadrants represents one step in end to end process which starts with the business strategy and finishes with the operations. The performance being supplied back to business strategy, we can consider the operation as beginning for the new cycle (Calder and Moir, 2009). Each of the quadrants is divided into three layers: inner layer – key issues dealt by board, middle layer – executive management and the outer layer – IT practitioners (Calder, 2008).
Evaluating, directing and monitoring are the three main IT Governance task identified by the ISO/IEC 38500 for the directors (Calder and Moir, 2009). The board directs, evaluates and monitors the IT support. They evaluate the strategy, constraints and IT proposal and then monitors the six processes in the inner layer. If it does not deliver the requirements then the board directs through the processes in the upper part of the framework. The executive member manages the activities which help to deliver the end to end process. They are responsible for directing, evaluating and monitoring the process carried out by the IT practitioners. The IT practitioners make use of the tools and methodologies to plan, design, access, control, and deliver the IT support for business (Calder, 2008; Calder and Moir, 2009).
