Training programme on e-government project management


Course Overview

The EGov Metrics Training Programme is the application of information and communications technology ICT to government and governance into a simple, ethical, reliable, responsive and innovative social model.

All E-government initiatives, no matter how sizeable, commence with a project aimed at transforming the processes of government and thereby bringing services to citizens, businesses, and making government more connected.



Over the past two decades, the objectives of the public sector investment into information technology and e-government have evolved from increasing the quality and efficiency of internal government operations, through delivering better public services and making them available across traditional and electronic channels, to facilitating administrative and institutional reform, engaging citizens in policy- and decision-making processes, and (more recently) directly supporting policy and development goals within and across the health, education, economy, security and other sectors.

In order to respond to such objectives, contributions from an increasing range of actors including political and government leaders, public managers, agency staff (management, technical and service-level), business and non-profit partners, citizens and others are required.

To this end, however, the actors should understand their roles, possess competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) required to fulfill the responsibilities associated with their roles, and be able to work together and across different roles.


The importance of
E-government in facilitating effective and efficient service deliver, necessitates that E-government projects be initiated, implemented and managed efficiently and effectively.

Any effective programme for project management requires full understanding of the nature and complexity of the project environment, tools and resources available, and the management capabilities and skills.
