Overview

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 governments—at the federal, state, and local levels—are 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.

Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review
The book provides a good overview of readers interested in the potential benefits of technological innovations and their applications for government-to-business implementations to be successful. The book is a valuable source for keeping policy-makers updated with the development of e-commerce applications within government. This is one of the few books which illustrate well the government-to-business relationship while presenting a good framework and raising open issues that governments are and will be facing in the future.
