The objective of the paper is to present a clear management perspective on how IS&T project failure may be conceptualised within this management dispensation. Current knowledge on a generalised process for management control (expectations perspective), is used in the re-affirmation of the concept of Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) project failure.
