Description

Digital Government: Managing Public Sector Reform in the Digital Era presents a public management perspective on digital government and technology-enabled change in the public sector. It incorporates theoretical and empirical insights to provide students with a broader and deeper understanding of the complex and multidisciplinary nature of digital government initiatives, impacts, and implications.

The rise of digital government and its increasingly integral role in many government processes and activities, including overseeing fundamental changes at various levels across government, means that it is no longer perceived as just a technology issue. In this book Miriam Lips provides students with practical approaches and perspectives to better understand digital government. The text also explores emerging issues and barriers as well as strategies to more effectively manage digital government and technology-enabled change in the public sector.

Digital Government is the ideal textbook for postgraduate students on courses in public administration, public management, public policy, political science and international relations and e-government. It is also suitable for Public Service managers who are experiencing the impact of digital technology and data in the public sector.

About the Series

Routledge Masters in Public Management

Routledge Masters in Public Management is a series of original texts which offers students and practitioners a concise, coordinated and comprehensive learning resource.

The series benefits from a coordinated format, including the use of such pedagogical features as learning points, text boxes, annotated further reading and questions for further discussion. Each volume in the series stands in its own right as a textbook which is essential reading for a particular module in a public management degree scheme. Taken together, the series offers an integrated and up-to-date collection of core textbooks and supplementary reading that can provide the backbone of any student’s study of public management – whether based upon an MBA or MPA programme, a stand-alone course or through a period of individual study. Taking an expert look at an increasingly important and complex discipline, this is a groundbreaking series.

The resources represented in this series go beyond the “toolkit” or “recipe” format which does not reflect the way working in the public sector actually happens. Rather, the series encourages the reader to develop the core managerial skills and critical thinking required to excel in this discipline.
