A crib sheet for the transition team

New executives and managers entering the federal government as part of the next administration will need to begin participating quickly and meaningfully. The need for e-government to move forward in Internet time creates a further sense of urgency.

To that end, the following outline can serve as a "crib sheet" for new executives and managers to help them understand the federal environment. The e-government crib sheet categorizes e-government issues and activities into a seven-dimensional framework: architectures, business, management, leadership and culture, policy, relationship management, and technology.

It is important to think about all seven dimensions because conducting business via the World Wide Web is much broader than just implementing technology. Leadership, relationship management, content policies and many more issues confront the business manager on the Web.

Many of the topics listed have been the subject of previous FCW Dot-Gov Thursday articles. Links to these columns and other sources are included for additional information.
