In the age of digitalization, even the way we govern is adapting. Recently, with the successful implementation of e-governments, the way our systems are organized has changed. Here, Israel Patino Galvan suggests a specialized design structure as an alternative to the new, digital governments that are becoming increasingly more common. Through a thorough exploration of the history of these structures, and through field research in Mexico, serious deficiencies have been identified in the ways in which these e-governments have been implemented. Instead, Galvan offers a tri-phase solution to designing local governments, placing the direction and division of Information Technologies at the core to support the modernization and optimization process.
For researchers and practitioners in public administration, information technologies, or information systems, this is a vital text providing a detailed case study as support for a new organizational system.

Reviews for Designing Local e-Government: The Pillars of Organizational Structure
The author proposes a method for incorporating information technologies into local governments, based on the design and implementation of an organizational structure that is focused on a directorate or division of information technologies to ensure the successful implementation of local e-government, positive interactions with stakeholders, and the identification of the scale of the changes required. He discusses organizational structures and their types, then presents a case study of local government organizational structures and e-government implementation in local governments in Mexico, ending with a proposal for the combined implementation of an organizational structure with the implementation of an e-government system for the successful and sustainable implementation of e-government. -- Annotation (c)2019 * (protoview.com) *
