Abstract

This paper describes a key strategy formulated for a least developed country, Bangladesh, as a part of an eGovernment capacity building project under the auspices of the Australian Government's Public Sector Linkages Program (PSLP). The project was initiated based on the findings of an ongoing PhD, which identified lack of knowledge and attitudes as the major stumbling blocks preventing ICT adoption in Bangladesh's public sector. A five year strategic pathway addresses this critical issue by fast tracking ICT management capability of the government officials and decision makers to fill the 'knowledge gap' and by empowering them on eGovernment processes for its successful implementation. Accordingly, an education program—Educate to Innovate—was undertaken to build the capacity of government officials through a comprehensive, concise training program, supported by a ready reckoner handbook specially prepared to suit the context.
