  • Since launch of Michigan’s new Portal on July 10, 2001, there has been a dramatic increase in usage: Site visits have nearly doubled Pages viewed have nearly quadrupled National recognition (September 2001): The portal was selected as one of the 10 best sites in the U.S . for providing citizens and businesses with online government services and information - Government Technology Magazine and the Center for Digital Government . The portal was ranked #2 in the nation (#14 in 2000) in an evaluation of more than two dozen features, including personalization, searchable databases, and the number and type of online services - Brown University’s Taubman Center for Public Policy and American Institutions. Governor John Engler: “No other state can match the functionality, convenience and ease of use that provides to our customers.”
  • On a side note, mention that all State of Michigan e-government activities are being included in this year’s Digital State survey put on by Center for Digital Government. This is a four-module survey, the first three module’s of which have already been evaluated, yielding Michigan as being in the top fifteen on all but one category . Categories in which Michigan ranked in the top 15 include Digital Democracy, Law Enforcement and Courts, Social Services, e-Commerce/Business Regulation, and e-government Management/Administration. Michigan was ranked below 15 (actually, below 25) in Taxation/Revenue.
  • Emphasize the difference between e-Michigan as a temporary office that is centrally leading all e-government initiatives vs. which is just one of the projects that falls under the purview of e-Michigan.
  • Highlight some of the key features and best practices related to
  • Although the portal is a platform for providing all of Michigan’s online services, it is just another pretty web site if it does not offer the services needed by customers. By May 2002, over 70 new e-government services will be launched through e-Michigan and collaboration with all State agencies. This slide indicates the majority of these projects (some remain confidential), and shows which have been launched so far. Importantly, this slide shows the current project status based on our current schedule, as of December 11, 2001. All of the projects listed in the column “Fall 2001” are projected to the launched by the end of December 2001.
  • e-Michigan conducted an assessment of nearly 100 existing State web sites We rated the sites based on Information Content Ease of Use/Navigation Layout and Design Features and Services Usage
  • Briefly describe the types as well as specific brands of technologies selected to support
  • 5 2 Communications Approach Establish project-specific and master e-Michigan communications plans Provide frequent communications across multiple vehicles e.g., agency internal and external newsletters, e-Michigan Global Updates, e-Michigan Handbook, multi-agency representation at all meetings Establish Single Points of Contact for each agency, responsible for agency communications to/from e-Michigan Maintain database of all communications, audiences, etc. Marketing and Publicity Approach Issue press releases for all projects or groups of projects, emphasizing where to find on Provide articles/updates to industry publications Participate in conferences related to new services or portal features e.g., E-Gov 2001, American Public Human Services Association, NASCIO, Michigan Information Systems Association, MAGCU Contract for marketing and advertising services Place posters in all state facilities, such as welcome centers, office buildings, walk-in service areas Change Leadership Conduct project-specific stakeholder assessments Assess and guide leadership alignment Assess change/implementation readiness Establish change leadership plans, as needed per project Leverage Single Points of Contact in assessments, change leadership planning and communications planning
  • The proposed approach is a 6 step process. The first three steps build a business case and the final three deliver the value from the investment. It is iterative, flexible and easily integrated into project workplans. A highly interactive consulting style and the ValuePrint approach, together significantly increase buy-in and commitment.
  • As migration continues and workplans are refined, agencies must be prepared to provide the necessary resources to complete the migration as efficiently as possible.
  • Electronic Government projects can be done quickly (only 91 days from the start of the IBM contract until new portal launch) and on time/budget. To be successful in a condensed timeline, the best staff and resources must be brought to bear for these projects.   Public/private partnerships can work by bringing the best ideas from the Fortune 500 companies and applying them to state initiatives. The need for a world-class content management system was identified early as a best practice in building next generation government portals. Experiences from major auto companies and manufacturing companies assisted in fine-tuning the best approach.   Applying technology is only a part of building a successful new web portal. The required business theme integration, cultural change, BPR, and communications present the biggest challenges to successful enterprise portal development .
  • Anticipated Questions: Q: What happens to the e-MI office when the EO creating e-MI expires on May 1? A: The options to continue e-MI's work are being explored. These will be presented to the Governor for his consideration and decision. Q: What happens to e-MI with the new Dept of IT? A: The e-MI office will continue to operate as it now does, and we expect to have a close working relationship with the new dept, just as we do now with staff at DMB and the other departments and agencies in state government. Finally, if asked about DoIT specifically - director, plans, etc - please decline to answer and please don't speculate. That will only lead to rumors galore. Plus, the conf attendees have a chance to get info on this from Janet McClelland from Civil Svc who is speaking on 10/11. She has been involved in the DoIT transition and can address to the degree there are answers, the DoIT questions raised.

    30. 30. Lessons Learned: Our lessons learned are many, but here are previous success factors that were integrated into the project from the outset <ul><li>Executive sponsorship and clear priorities from the highest level of government (in this case, Governor Engler provided this leadership) are critical to success and speed of implementation. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Effective communication strategies are essential at all levels. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Good project management (following PMI principles) is a key ingredient to success. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>An excellent, effective, governance structure must be in place. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Coordination and cooperation between agencies must be regular and consistent, and must provide opportunities for feedback. </li></ul>
    31. 31. Lessons Learned: In addition, the following lessons were learned through this project <ul><li>Electronic Government projects can be done quickly (only 91 days from the start of the IBM contract until new portal launch) and on time/budget. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Public/private partnerships can work by bringing the best ideas from the Fortune 500 companies and applying them to state initiatives. </li></ul><ul><li>Applying technology is only a part of building a successful new web portal. </li></ul><ul><li>Test, Test, Test – Even after unit and system tests were completed, many other items were caught in User Acceptance and the stress testing of our new portal. Some new items were even identified at our press conference “walk-through” with the Governor. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Keeping the momentum going after major deliverables is difficult, so make sure you celebrate successes and regain your focus on the next set of goals. </li></ul>
