In the emergence of information economy and the global discourse of the new era of Knowledge Based Society, not only organizational culture debates, but also the information technology topic find their ways to the management concerns and initiatives. Thus, the general level being management and corporate governance, the specificity (locally applied action of global discourses) is preoccupation for performance, which wears the cloths of “cultural decoding” and “IT governance” – the last being also a strategic management view, which can not be included in technical studies. We prospect tow of the means of Agency theory: Multinationals (thorough organizational culture) and Higher education programmes (through Strategic management programmes). The challenge is fostered by the process of adaptation to performance measures for Romania: a premise for success.
