Innovation of Government sheds spotlight on knowledge transfer of successful eGovernment projects and the transfer of experience. There is high interest in assessing model projects, in using good practice cases, in considering the feasibility of transfer, and in spurring an organisational learning process.
Academics and professionals from public and private organisations have contributed to this collective volume. The themes cover different aspects of knowledge transfer from several points of view: case studies, country reports, challenges, deliberating strategies, analyses on the framing conditions and policies, model projects referring to various settings on national and international level. Several transfer mechanisms are considered such as competitions, transfer conferences, virtual communities as well as mentorship and facilitation.
The book is edited by Roland Traunmüller and published by Trauner Verlag in it's Informatics Series. The 15 contributions of this collective volume are grouped in three sections: framing the conditions, coping with challenges and making transfer work. The detailed table of contents see below.
