Description : In this study of electronic systems in government, case studies are used to compare e-government across 21 countries. The goal of the research to see if there is a global convergence in the way governments use electronic information—and the findings suggest that most countries have much in common. In particular, concepts regarding service delivery, internal and external efficiency, and government networking were found to be similar across the sample governments.
Description : In accordance with the President's management agenda, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has sponsored initiatives to promote expansion of electronic gov't. -- the use of information technology, particularly Web-based Internet applications, to enhance gov't. services. Each initiative demands a high degree of collaboration among organizations. For four of these initiatives, the GAO was asked to determine, among other things, their implementation progress and the extent of collaboration among agencies and other parties involved. GAO determined that all four of the e-government initiatives that it reviewed have made progress in meeting the objectives and milestones of their early phase. Charts and tables.
Description : In this book, 30 cases from 16 countries considered to be pioneers in developing innovative e-governance applications are analyzed. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the author provides key insights and practical guidelines on: ways to successfully implement e-government projects; selecting application areas, project designs, strategies and their implementation; benefits and impact of e-governance on public sector reform, poverty reduction and empowerment; methodology for evaluating e-government projects; and overall strategy formulation.
Description : It seems that only a short time ago, numerous academics and practitioners in the field were somewhat blinded by the successes of the dot-com developments in the private sector, and some of them enthusiastically claimed that public administration was to be revolutionized. But that did not happen, and also the dot-com soap bubble burst. This suggests that there is much yet to be learned about innovation in public administration, especially about innovations at the cornerstones of technological and institutional transformations. New and more fully developed formulations of theory into practice are needed. The goal of the editors of this book is to contribute to some aspects of the understanding of e-government. In order to understand electronic government, one has to scrutinize the various environments and contexts in which e-government is developed and implemented. As such, it builds upon the biological and environmental lines of reasoning that have been suggested by authors like Bonnie Nardi and Vicky O'Day, and Thomas Davenport and Laurence Prusak.
