  • 4. 1. What is “Vision from the Top”?

    • e-Gov plan follows the strategic principle: ”Think Big, Start Small, Scale Fast”
    Think Big - Before any single and concrete e-Government initiative is implemented, an overall picture of e-Gov should be sketched out Including: short- and long- term objectives, plans for funding and all connected issues - "Think Big" does not mean a very large-scale e-Government plan Start Small - The portion selected must be: simple, easy to carry and achieve, with limited investment required and the least risk - Purpose: ensure the success of the first steps The project team will be given credit, gain substantive experience, learn lessons and win support from users and top management. Scale Fast
    • - Anything achieved should be applied to the entire government agencies promptly, so as to enlarge the 'victory' and obtain as much economic and social benefit as possible
    • By starting on a small scale, all the problems, resistances and obstacles will be exposed and this will benefit the entire e-Gov plan
    • This also means keep pace with advancing technologies
