The major challenge for software project control is to adapt to the associated control practices in order to achieve sustainability for the software project. This paper reviews software project control practices in a number of control perspectives, namely organizational controls, project management and software engineering. The aim is to extend the concept of controlling software project towards adapting the appropriate control practices. We also identified a number of basic control components to better understand the control practices. The conclusions are that (a) control elements create its own complexities on software project control and (b) communication between the controller and controllee is important in identifying and understanding control direction. The principal recommendation is to understand proper control practices in studies of various complex situations of software project control. Finally, we have suggested future research in this area for solutions to software project control practices.
