Although control theory has often been invoked to explain the coordination between client and vendor for information systems development ISD, insights into its moderating effects for explicating ISD contract performance, especially in the offshore context, is rather limited. [...] Key Result We test the theorized model in a field study comprising 160 offshore ISD projects executed by Indian vendors. Our results establish the significant complementary role of mechanistic governance on the relationships of…Expand
