I didn't like it at all... Only seems to say that the result of a qualitative approach to post-project evaluation depends upon (i) the philosophical approach you take†in forming your approach to the investigation convoluted with (ii) whether you choose to take a narrow or wide perspective across the spectrum of people-process-technology issues likely to be found to the cause(s)/ rationale(s)†for failure. No novelty there...
And just what is a "reflective practitioner"? (Page 11, first sentence of section D)†Conjures up an image of a researcher†in a shiny suit ;-)

Yes, that was the sort of direction I was coming from.† In my minds eye I was trying to envisage what the Bibliography/Reference section might contain in our forthcoming document - beyond CS Transform.

John, Colin

I guess I sit somewhere between the two of you.† I think the subject area - which are the factors that often lead e-government programmes†or projects to fail? - is extremly relevant to the TGF.† However, I didn't think the paper itself added much to the debate.† It does a reasonable job of summarising the research and literature in this area, but then most of the focus is on categorising these into a taxonomy of different research approaches.† I think our approach in the TGF needs to be much less academic and more practitioner-focused - setting out a pragmatic set of principles and checklist of critical success factors which governments can use in order to "build in success".

Our own initial stab at this is set out in the Critical Success Factor checklist in†the CS Transform white paper that we have thrown into the TGF mix.† That checklist draws on a lot of the research surveyed in the Manchester paper, but tries to draw it together into an actionable framework.†

I donít think thereís anything in this for the TGF TC.† †Itís probably a very good paper for its purpose but doesnít contribute anything for our proposed TG Framework IMO.

Greetings all

This from a Yahoo Group list I subscribe to.

Richard Heeks is a regular, if not frequent, contributor there.

This Yahoo group list is fairly quiet but I find useful as it comprises a number of Asia Pacific located folks (e.g. Sri Lanka), that are not members of eGov OASIS.

I haven't read this in detail but on a quick skim I saw some things that would resonate with this group. †

Cheers

Colin

Subject: [egov4dev] Analysing e-Government Failure: New Online Paper Compares Different Approaches

A new paper in the i-Government Working Paper series is available at: http://www.sed.manchester.ac.uk/idpm/research/publications/wp/igovernment/index.htm

It compares factoral, systems and interpretive approaches to the analysis of e-government project failure. It identifies the different conceptual, methodological and epistemological foundations of each approach, and illustrates approach selection adopted in one research case study.

The paper has a linked educators' guide to facilitate its use for postgraduate and researcher training.
