The Center for Electronic Governance at the United Nations University International Institute of Software Technology (UNU-IIST), Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) and the Uganda National Information Technology Authority (NITA), in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), are jointly organizing a week of Executive Training on Foundations of Government Information Leadership.
The training will take place in Kampala, Uganda from 22–26 July 2013, under the patronage of the Ugandan Ministry of Information and Communication Technology, the Ministry of Local Government and the Ministry of Public Service. It will be taught by Elsa Estevez and Tomasz Janowski from UNU, Henk Sol from the Groningen University and the Technical University, Delft, Netherlands and Roxana Bassi on behalf of UNESCO.
The training is addressed to policy-makers, decision-makers, public managers and Government Chief Information Officers (GCIO) from Uganda and neighboring countries, responsible for planning, managing and sustaining Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Electronic Governance (EGOV) initiatives. It is ideally suited for these organizations that recognize the increasing importance of GCIO for the well-performing public sector and for engaging non-state actors in the pursuit of public policy objectives.
The training will focus on the enabling and facilitating role of ICT and EGOV in: 1) formulating and implementing government policies; 2) increasing the effectiveness, efficiency and efficacy of government programs and operations; and 3) producing concrete value to the public.
The training will consist of 13 thematic sessions covering a wide range of knowledge areas relevant to the audience as follows*:
- Introduction to EGOV
- Global Trends in EGOV
- Policy-Driven EGOV
- EGOV Strategy and Alignment
- ICT Policy Development and Implementation
- ICT Governance
- Government Information Leadership
