Companies can no longer rely on technology alone as a source of competitive advantage. They should treat corporate information as a key strategic asset. Researchers and practitioners have recognized the importance of information governance, but it is still a relatively new research area. In this action design
research we contribute to the prescriptive knowledge base on how to design and implement information governance in a real-life organizational context. The research was conducted from 2013 to 2016 in a publicly traded professional services company operating in the technology-consulting field. During the research period, the company implemented information governance practices to support its new competence management system and related competence management organization. According to our experience the implementation of the design principle, “information as an asset,” can lead to significant business benefits
