E-Government 2001 provides in-depth case studies of the "state" of e-government today. The book chronicles the "early days" of e-government and presents a collective snapshot in time as to where governmentsat the federal, state, and local levelsare today as they continue their march toward e-government. Case studies include analysis of the use of auction models by government, privacy strategies for e-government, e-commerce applications in government, the use of the Internet to deliver government services, and a study of how state employment agencies are using technology to provide improved service. From these case studies, Mark A. Abramson and Grady E. Means develop six initial lessons which government leaders should know before undertaking major e-government initiatives. The lessons should prove valuable to all executives who aspire to transform their organizations from traditional bureaucracies to e-enabled organizations.
