A core problem we find with e-Government initiatives in the Pacific is the lack of clearly articulated business models. Well thought out business models ensure that any e-Government or digital transformation initiatives remain sustainable once the initial project funding runs out. Unfortunately most government departments in the Pacific don’t have a framework in place to develop business models for their e-Government or digital transformation projects.
So we’ve adapted the business model canvas framework from Strategyzer to help our clients understand and then develop business models that are sustainable for their e-Government projects. For those of you not familiar with the business model canvas from strategyzer take a look at their introductory video.
We’ve taken this initial business modelling framework and then expanded on this to ensure that it fits into the e-Government context. We will release a series of blog posts later that expand on how we’ve modified the business model canvas.
