Abstract—These days information technology (IT) is an integral part of all business functions. Hence, managing IT resources efficiently and effectively has become a challenging undertaking. In this context, IT governance has presented itself as a management tool that allows decision makers to focus their efforts on value creation activities that are closely aligned with business strategy. However, IT governance tends to modify the power structure within organizations. This frequently leads to conflicts, which can be analyzed with game theory. This paper presents a systematic literature review of the use of game theory to support IT governance initiatives. It is intended to be a source of information for researchers who are involved with the analysis of IT governance structures in both the private and public sectors.

Index Terms—Game theory, IT governance, literature review, IT strategy, IT resource management.
