Knowledge Management is Why E-Government Exists

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


There are many countries in the world where e-government services are underdeveloped. In e-government literature, numerous reasons are attributed to the failures in the implementation of e-government services. A reason often overlooked is the fact that government agencies may not see the value of existing ICTs to the current knowledge management processes supporting the delivery of government services. In this chapter, the Mobilization-Decision theory is used to explain how the perceived knowledge management value that can be enabled using information and communication technologies resulted in the implementation of e-government services in Europe.
