Information technology is the lynchpin of Government’s drive to make public services ever-more efficient. “Doing more with less” is not simply a mantra. It is the demand for systems capable of delivering up-to-date information, on demand.
A number of high-profile ICT programme failures and delays, however, have raised the question of how well public service agencies manage their ICT programmes to meet Government expectations. Public Sector ICT consultant Adrian Hendry looks at how mature New Zealand Public Services agencies are in managing ICT programmes, where they get it right, and what can be improved.
