Fagligt indhold:The course will provide the students with an introduction to the strategies and underlying methodologies as these are defined in national eGov strategies, EU strategies and other international recommendation (OECD, UN).
As a foundation we will discuss organisational theory and theories related to social studies as these relate to public organisations and in this context discuss methods to assess maturity as well as the typical defined objectives and methodologies deployed for business cases, benefit/cost analysis in order to define strategic goals for eGovernment in a national or sub-sector context.
We will include web 2.0 and social networking methods and experiences as well as recent trends in technology and discuss how these trends can be utilised and how they will change the need and demand for public services. In this context we will discuss 'Democracy 3.0' and inclusion of citizens into the political life. (e-Elections, petitions, hearings, referenda)

The focus will be on eGovernment services, digitalisation strategies and projects, including eHealth, and a number of practical cases will be used as a basis for the students to test application of relevant tools and methods during their analysis. Portfolio selection and prioritisation techniques will illustrated, including a case based on the development of the ICT strategy for Greenland. Other cases will focus on project implementation of eGovernment projects including choice of governance model and estimated outcome/value of these projects.
