Abstract

More than a decade has passed since the conception of major Government e-strategies and significant outcomes have been delivered worldwide concerning information technology infrastructure and e-service deployment. Already, major e-Strategies have closed their lifecycles and have been reviewed. British “t-Government” and Obama's “Open Government Initiative” are only some of the transformation results, where citizens have been placed in the center of the strategic planning and e-Government priorities have been reconsidered. This paper addresses an important issue: the identification of international e-strategic transformation and the recognition of patterns for e-strategic transformation. A methodological analysis of major e-strategies is performed according to strategic lifecycle management tool and patterns for e-strategic evolution are structured.

2. E-Strategic Management: The Case Of Greece

The term strategy comes from the ancient Greek word “Stratighia” and describes military tactics and army organization (Lysons & Farrington, 2006). After the Second World War the sciences of business and economics adopted strategy in order to present a plan, a technique, an element, a position or a perspective of an enterprise against market’s competition. A business strategy is analyzed in its vision, which presents a desirable future position and its mission, which defines the route towards the achievement of this position. The Critical Success Factors (CSFs) are elements that are necessary for the establishment of the strategic mission (Boynlon & Zmud, 1984).
