Brief Description:
E-Government, a key concept in modern public sector management, is recognized as an enabler of government performance. E-Government allows for the introduction, augmentation and provision of news ways of delivery government services. The e-government paradigm disrupts and transforms traditional government service delivery channels by questioning current structures and processes. However, while e-government offers possibilities for the transformation of the government service delivery mechanism, the realization of these benefits are not possible due to poor project management practices in the public sector. This is why it is important to have a full understanding of the nature of e-government and the project management issues related to IT in the public sector. This course will provide participants with the knowledge and the skills to exploit e-government potential with relevant project management practices. Thus the knowledge and understanding of how to apply ICT in the public sector for the enhancement of government performance is a critical area of expertise for not only managers at the state and local levels, but also for consultants and practitioners. E-Government Project Management and the strategic use of E-Government requires that those involved be trained in the project management, policies, uses and implications of new technologies.
