E-government provides unparalleled opportunities for governments to streamline processes and improve customer service. As a result, achieving successful citizen-centred e-government has become a key concern for many governments. This chapter analyses the Irish government’s evolutionary path to the provision of successful e-government. The success factors and stages of evolution of e-government are identified and a detailed examination of how the Irish government successfully implemented its e-government strategy is presented. The lessons learned from this case provide a valuable road map for the successful attainment of citizen-centred e-government in other jurisdictions.
