This Aragon Research Toolkit Presentation is designed to help clients understand the process of defining a governance discipline. We will overview
how governance is changing in response to digital business, the key parts of governance, and its
implications for the enterprise.

Some key takeaways from our research include:
• Digital business requires integrating people, business processes, information, and things through effective governance.
• Organizations must define clear business outcome- driven metrics and measure those metrics to understand their business strategy.
• Modern organizations must include ethics in their definition of governance and take action to ensure they are integrating ethics into their decision-making.


Governance is a critical discipline for managing the modern enterprise. Without effective governance discipline, organizations risk falling short of their business goals and finding themselves unprepared for the risks of the future. In this toolkit, we outline the definition of governance, present the Aragon Research Governance Framework, explore the way that governance is changing in response to digital business, and consider the implications of those changes for the modern enterprise.
