This book lays out an impressive, well-articulated set of trends that have affected or will soon affect local governments throughout the nation through technology.
Dr. Shark chose local governments as the primary focus because their jurisdictions are where most innovation and experimentation takes place. Despite its focus, this book should be especially helpful to state governments, and perhaps federal agencies, trying to better understand the challenges local governments face.
Seven Trends That Will Transform Local Government through Technology is a must-read for all public managers who are seeking answers about how all the pieces fit together and, as importantly, why.
