Assessment of Dynamic Organisational Capabilities for Interoperability in Context of Different E-government Development Stage
MetadataShow full item record
Diverse public sector organisations are engaged in the contemporary e-government projects, so the significance of new organisational capability for e-government interoperability is increasing. The risks of these projects implementation could be effectively mitigated through the assessment of e-government interoperability, thereto researchers are searching for the relevant tools, and there are already some results of a practical value in leading e-government countries. This work addresses the research problem, how these leading methods applied for the assessment of e-government interoperability can be adopted in the context of countries in earlier stage of e-government development. Based on the analysis of theory on contemporary e-government development models and management methods, an integrated framework for the process of a joined-up government development, and the research instrument for the assessment of perception, significance, and level of practice of dynamic organisational capabilities for e-government interoperability in a particular country were proposed. They were applied in the empirical research that resulted into the modified version of the toolkit for the assessment of e-government interoperability offered by the USA researchers, meeting the requirements of current e-government development process in Lithuania. Finally, the recommendations for integration of the modified version of the toolkit and the proposed research instrument into Lithuanian e-government development process are provided. Their implementation can shift e-government development process from its current focus on stand-alone electronic services towards more integrated approach of the joined-up government development.
