E-leadership institutions for the knowledge economy (English)

Leadership, institutions and human capabilities are the key to moving countries from visions of the potential of the ongoing information and communication technology revolution to real competitive, innovative and knowledge-based economies. This paper presents five basic models or archetypes of e-leadership institutions. They are used for comparative analysis and for detecting patterns and trends of an otherwise complex reality and rich institutional innovation and learning. They can serve as initial starting points or options for governments in creating or evolving their institutional framework for e-development. None of these basic models need necessarily be implemented as is. Mixes and matches among these models are increasingly innovated and tailored to the specific needs and conditions of each country. Governments may choose from and build upon these basic approaches, with full understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each. The paper's diverse country case studies suggest that these models are evolving, hybrids are being created and rich lessons are being integrated into further innovations of e-leadership institutions.
