Abstract

This chapter provides a case study of how a rural California county transitioned its technological governance from one centered on the perceived needs of individual departments to one integrating technological needs across the entire enterprise. The chapter details the use of “communities of interest”, a way of grouping departments with related missions for broad-based analysis of technology needs and solutions. The chapter describes the process the county used to implement this new strategy. The author hopes that use of this method can help other local governments to avoid obsolescence, unmet needs, or overlapping systems in purchase and implementation of technology systems.
