Why and how did Korea become the world’s top digital government leader? This book examines the Korean model and how it is different from the digital government models of the West, specifically of the United States and the UK. The book also looks at successes and failures that Korea has encountered during the process of helping developing nations set up digital governments.

The book begins with the origins and historical development of digital governance. It examines digital government strategies and informatization policies in Korea’s nation development and its promotion of the information and communications technology (ICT) industry. The book explains that one of the key successes was the result of leadership and a strong pan-governmental propulsion system, namely ICT Governance. The book also suggests a new digital government development model in response to rapid changes in the ICT environment, specifically in view of the 4th Industrial Revolution. It is a useful reference for developing countries that are looking at developing their own national information master plan, including digital government.
