To date, little has been done to theorize the important forecasters for initial and on-going governance success (Grabski et al. 2011). This research is an effort to achieve that, It examine evaluates & identifies governance for Enterprise systems & categorizes them into the respective phases in the enterprise systems experience life cycle model (See Figure-1) proposed by Markus and Tanis (2000), and discusses how governance can be effectively communicated in the enterprise systems environment for enterprises. The justification for the selection of this model is that this framework allows researchers to calculate or explain an organization’s actual ES accomplishments and successes in an organized way.
