E-Government


Spring 2015 quarter

Taught by

state and federal budget process, strategic planning, technology in government, performance management

The course will focus on understanding the role and management of technology in the public sector. Information technology is increasingly "how organizations get things done" but using IT effectively has special challenges in the public sector. These challenges include how organizations, built for stability not speed, are adapting to the rapid pace of technological change, succeeding within a risk-averse political climate, and satisfying stakeholder's and the public's high-expectations for low-cost, convenience, transparency, and protection of privacy. Finally, we will consider the contribution a new generation of workers may bring to increasing public participation and transforming service delivery.
