About the Book

Managing Digital Governance provides public administrators with a comprehensive, integrated framework and specific techniques for making the most of digital innovation to advance public values. The book focuses on the core issues that public administrators face when using information and communication technologies (ICTs) to produce and deliver public service, and to facilitate democratic governance, including efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, and accountability.

Offering insight into effectively managing growing complexity and fragmentation in digital technology, the book provides practical management strategies to address external and internal challenges of digital governance. External challenges include digital inclusiveness, open government, and citizen-centric government; internal ones include information and knowledge management, risk management for digital security and privacy, and performance management of information technologies. Unique in its firm grounding in public administration and management literature and its synergistic combination of theory and practice, Managing Digital Governance is forward-looking in identifying future trends and developing corresponding capacity. At the same time, it offers enduring lessons and time-tested digital governance management strategies. This book serves as an invaluable resource for students, scholars, and practitioners in public administration, management, and governance who aspire to become leaders in leveraging digital technologies to advance good public governance.
