Abstract:

IS projects comprise many challenges and difficulties at all
development phases, with high risks of such projects end in
failure. Failure rates for major IS projects appear to linger around
70%. IS project governance is a new born theory and a nascent
field of research. Previous researches in the topic of IS project
governance concentrated on high level project governance
(general perspective through view the project as one block), they
didn’t apply the projects governance in particular perspective
according to the project development’ phases and activities. Due
to the continuity of high percentages of IS projects failure,
specific governance approach for IS projects is a serious attempt
to enhance their success through addressing the projects’ failures
and defects. Wherever the specific governance approach
concentrates on all project’ phases and activates in details, project
feasibility study governance is introduced in this research as a
sample for applying the specific governance approach for IS
projects.
