Organizational transformation is critical to the effective application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in business and in government in particular. There is growing consensus that most reported failures in ICT related-projects are due to the relatively poor attention given to organizational transformation issues - especially in terms of people and processes. This course discusses organizational transformation in the context of electronic governance. It starts by explaining change management in large organizations such as government agencies, new public management, strategic and performance management, business process reengineering, and the role of good practice program management when implementing IT strategy. Finally, the importance of ICT governance is explained as an enabler of organizational change.
