With big data growing rapidly in importance, academics and practitioners have been considering the means through which they can incorporate the shifts these technologies bring into their competitive strategies. Drawing on the emerging importance of information governance, this study examines the mechanisms through which it can facilitate competitive performance by aligning organizational capabilities. To test our proposed research model, we used survey data from 158 chief information officers and IT managers working in Norwegian firms. By means of partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM), results show that information governance helps strengthen a firms’ dynamic and operational capabilities, which in turn lead to competitive performance gains. The results are discussed in relation to their theoretical and practical implications.
