Efficient Information Systems (IS) adequately serving business needs can be seen as an important prerequisite for the survival of most organizations. Newly developing or adopting those systems is a challenging task. To increase probabil-ity of success in often complex development projects, managers usually imple-ment controls. However, most controls require support and active commitment of the controlees in order to be effective. To better understand the concept of control legitimacy and resulting control responses, researchers have recently shifted their focus on the controlee perspective. However, the process of choosing and enact-ing control is still considered top-down. In this poster paper, we propose to move away from this assumption. Instead, project managers should make the process more participatory by involving the controlees already at the beginning of IS de-velopment projects. This would help to choose and implement a set of controls which is perceived as legitimate and thus supported by the controlees.
