Mini Track:
e-Government: Implementation Strategies for Developing Countries

Organised and Chaired by:
Dr Zaigham Mahmood, Univ. of Derby, UK

E-Government is about harnessing the information revolution to improve the lives of citizens and businesses and to improve the efficiency of government...... Whereas, developed economies such as those in Europe and the US are well advanced in the process of achieving vertical and horizontal integrating with respect to their e-government projects, many developing countries are at the initial stages of such developments – in some cases, providing only a one-way communication...... The governments need to have ICT infrastructure, processes and policies as well as training provision for the masses in place, and citizens must be ready to embrace the new technologies and approaches. So, for developing economies, there are many issues and barriers to resolve and overcome.

The purpose of this track is to address such issues and suggest implementation strategies. The aim is to bring researchers and practitioners together to: 1) explore the issues and challenges that developing countries are facing with respect to development of e-government projects; 2) discuss frameworks, policies and strategies for successful implementation of such projects; 3) look into innovative practices and diffusion of innovation approaches and 4) share best practices and ideas based on case studies from successful ventures. The objective is to suggest strategies, frameworks and models to support the developing countries in their endeavour to achieve a successful and effective e-government.
