Cases on Adoption, Diffusion and Evaluation of Global E-Governance Systems:
Impact at the Grass Roots
A book edited by Dr. Hakikur Rahman, ICMS, Bangladesh

To be published by IGI Global:

This publication is part of the Advances in Electronic Government
Research (AEGR) Book Series found at http://www.igi-global.com/aegr

Generally, e-government refers to the use of new ICTs by governments
applied to the full range of government functions. In a broad sense,
e-government is the use of information technology to provide citizens
and organizations with more convenient access to government
information and services, and offer delivery of public services to
citizens, business partners, and others who are working in the public
sector. E-governance is a network of organizations to incorporate
government, non-government, profit, nonprofit, not-for-profit and
private sector entities. In e-governance there are no distinct
boundaries. The model for e-governance could be a one-stop portal,
where citizens have access to a variety of information and services.

Overall Objective of the Book
Most of the e-government systems at the early stages are being built
to exactly mimic the age-old conventional systems, and virtually
computerize the traditional methods and procedures. Electronic
solutions are merely implanted into government offices without looking
into the transformational aspects (mental, organizational, physical,
logical, cultural, working style, etc.) and are not providing the
entire eco-system for long-term sustenance. This book will accommodate
cases related to theories, issues and methodologies for designing,
implementing and operating successful e-government systems. This book
will cover a variety of services and applications across the globe
that have been improving the overall governance of nations and
economies. This book will be concise in synthesizing the theoretical
analysis, focus more to pragmatic implementations, and emphasize on
effective e-government systems for better implementation at the grass

Target Audience
Being a casebook on e-government, this book will try to cover other
aspects of the e-society, such as e-learning, e-business,
e-procurement, e-commerce, e-payment, e-health, e-democracy, e-voting,
e-police, and other e-applications and e-services. Therefore, this
book will be useful to development partners, policy makers, government
and non-government staffs, knowledge managers, researchers, academics
and individuals.

Recommended topics for case studies include, but are not limited to,
the following:
- Laws, jurisdictions, policy matters related to e-government
- Benchmarking of e-government system
- Designing of e-government systems
- Adoption of appropriate solutions and utilities
- Assessment of e-government policies and systems
- Comprehensive analysis of e-government implementations
- Performance and effectiveness measurement of e-government systems
- Incorporation of decision supports tools
- Learning and Knowledge development
- Economic empowerment, Social empowerment, and Sustainable development
- Recommendations on Benchmarking and its algorithms
