on Managing Transition in e-government projects through system
University of Khartoum, Sudan
e-government represents a rich pool of organizational and technological
issues, the implementation of e-government projects continued to be
challenged by different organizational, institutional, technical,
technological and societal considerations. Literature reveals
that e-government implementations counties continued to face serious
problems with regards to the acquisition, infusion and diffusion. The
problems range from the lack of know-how to lack of financial
resources. Within this context, the need for a more structural and
systematic innovative approach for the management of transition in
e-government projects is critical.
Despite the increasing potential role of system innovation (using
transition management and strategic niche management concepts), little
has been done to investigate the following issues: 1) The
reconciliation of decision making behaviour of actors (stakeholders) –
individuals and groups – in each layer of the multi- level system
innovation process as well as across the domain of all levels, 2) The
strategic action oriented towards the coupling and connecting problems
at different levels of analysis, 3) Reconciliation of differences of
perception held by each actor with regards to the processes, activities
and functionality at the corporate and level-specific domains, 4) The
applicability of strategic niches that guide implementation and reduce
negative social effects, and 5) The development of conceptual
perspectives to better understand, identify and influence social
transition through investigating the potential of socio-technical
techniques such as the Technology Adoption Model, Technology Acceptance
Curve, and Maturity Models, among others.
