This paper presents a metamodel that allows constructions of specific model instances to support the measurement of successfully tracking IT-governance related objectives. This aim is accomplished by a model-based support of the operationalization and the analysis of defined objectives in the manner of determining compliance degrees for companies. The resulting metamodel is achieved by applying an established construction method.
