Using the constant comparative method of the grounded theory, the objective of this research is to identify the critical knowledge required of a global IS project manager. Although the objective of the study is to identify the knowledge required of a global IS project manager, this study focused to identify distinctive challenges of global IS projects and to derive the knowledge requirements of project managers to cope with the challenges. The identified knowledge requirements include system knowledge, business domain knowledge, technical project management knowledge, cultural knowledge, and interpersonal knowledge. This study also found that “information search”, “adaptability”, “responsiveness”, and “flexibility” of global IS project managers are important to a global IS project’s success. The results have important practical implications as to what areas of knowledge organizations should focus on to train their global IS project managers for the project’s success.

Keywords: ground theory building, constant comparative method, project manager, agility, knowledge requirements, global IS project
