This interpretative grounded theory (GT) study describes and analyzes governance issues in a Nordic inter- organizational information system (IOIS) project which spanned four user organizations, two suppliers, one national organization, a research organization and a Ministry. This study shows how GT can be used to gain significant insights to case study, and generate new concepts.

The paper concludes by discussing how organizing the project personnel, leadership styles and organizational learning issues could be attributed to governance and considers some theoretical and practical implications.
