The software development organizations need an understanding of the governance process and their practical approach to reach their strategic goals, a subject where there is a research opportunity. This study proposes a model type artifact to govern Very Small Entities (VSE) Teams for Software Development. The model design is based on COBIT 5 and IT governance best practices, with structural and dynamic governance components. The validation is done through the model application, in a case study, in a Public Sector Organization, using a SCRUM software process. The model application allows the appropriate responses to the software development needs and facilitate the solution of the problems in the project development. Besides, a survey shows that in a developing country, the model applicability can be generalizable. Thus, the study tests a tool for the practitioners and academics and contributes to the growth of the current knowledge concerning the Software Development Governance.
