Abstract

Already there is evidence to show that Australia is amongst the world leaders in gaining productivity benefits from the effective usage of information and communication technologies (ICT). This rapid success has contributed to positioning Australia second in a world ranking of public sector efficiency. This paper unfolds, in part, the story behind the success of ICT adoption in Australia and its use in the public sector, based on archival research, interviews and personal experience. The aim is to draw some lessons and provide motivation for least developed countries such as Bangladesh, which are yet to reap the full benefit of ICT. Our analysis suggests that the Australian government’s deep commitment and support for research and innovation, administrative reform, education, skill development, dissemination of knowledge and organisational and industry partnerships are some of the factors contributing to its successful use of ICT.
