IT offshoring is often carried out by different stakeholders with different working practices in complex and highly politicized settings, creating team boundaries between the stakeholders. Therefore, IT offshoring requires significant governance and coordination across the different teams. The information technology (IT) governance literature suggest that organizations apply IT governance mechanisms to oversee and coordinate IT-related activities to ensure the attainment of business objectives. Thus, on the basis of IT governance theory, this study seeks to better understand the nature of IT governance mechanisms and how they could be effective in bridging boundaries created during IT offshoring projects. These insights would contribute to the existing IT offshoring and IT governance literature, and help organizations have better understanding on how to manage the different boundaries that may arise during IT offshoring projects in order to achieve favourable offshoring outcomes.
