9780415891448: Digital Governance: New Technologies for Improving Public Service and Participation

The application of digital information and communication technologies (ICTs) to reform governmental structures, politics, and public administration is widely and perhaps naively viewed as the twenty-first century "savior," the enlightened way to reinvigorate democracy and improve the quality of citizen services. In this timely and thorough analysis, Michael Milakovich examines the assumptions underlying the ‘e-government revolution’ in light of the financial exigencies facing many commercial enterprises, governments and other organizations. Computer-driven information and communications technologies are impacting all aspects of public sector service delivery worldwide and many governments are moving away from an agency-centric toward a more citizen-centric approach to offering online services.

This book explores the transition from electronic government (e-gov) to digital or d-governance, emphasizing the importance of citizen participation and information technology to accomplish the change. The chapters concentrate on strategies for public administration organizational transformation and their implications for improved and measurable government performance. Digital self-governance is a broader umbrella-term referring to the networked extension of ICT relationships to include faster access to the web, mobile service delivery, networking, teleconferencing and use of multi-channel information technologies to accomplish higher-level two-way transactions. The shift from bureaucracy-centered to customer-centric service orientation is viewed as a means to restore public trust and improve service quality: Digital governance is the next step for governments at all levels to reduce costs, meet citizen expectations, and achieve economic recovery goals.

Review:

"Digital Governance is an important text for students of e-Government. Timely, thorough and intelligent. It fills a big gap in the literature for teaching texts."
Stuart W. Shulman, Founder & CEO, Texifter, LLC; University of Massachusetts

"This is the first significant book to blend globalization literature and the emerging debates in digital governance. In addition, the author explores in a sophisticated and comprehensive way the salience of citizen-centric approaches to offering public services through new ICT medias."
Eric Otenyo, Northern Arizona University

"This book provides a comprehensive and valuable treatment of the many critical issues that information technology poses for governance today and in the future. It examines the promise and challenges of technology in ways that are fundamental to the theory and practice of public administration, within the context of the U.S. and globally."
Karen Mossberger, University of Illinois at Chicago
