This paper discussed design patterns in Information Systems. It presents an enhanced 'product - process' design pattern that integrates governance, project management, project context and, particularly, quality. The pattern is used to bring coherence to the teaching of Information Systems development projects. A 'Project Management Support System' has been developed to reify the pattern enabling its practical use in education. The possible use of the design pattern approach in Information Systems is considered.
