Abstract

This paper initially discusses the necessity for realigning the mission and operations of government agencies to meet the changing demands of the environment, highlighting the need for organisational transformation (OT). Thereafter the paper moves on to discuss e-government as a key enabler to facilitate government sector re-alignment (GSR), and discusses the concepts of change content and change implementation within the context of OT. Researchers have identified over 70% of such initiatives which have not been successful and at the same time other researchers have identified the lack of attention on change content. Therefore this paper identifies visionary leadership and Government Process Re-engineering (GPR) as a methodology for developing change content. The use of GPR as a methodology facilitates a shift from developing structure based change content towards process based change content – which would enable the organisation to view the required re-alignment from a more holistic perspective.
