1. Focus on results that matter to the customer, not technology
-- E-Gov is about the business of government, not websites
-- IT is enabler, but also a barrier to reform if not brought under control and focused from citizen (vs. agency perspective)
2. Management reform went beyond IT, to address organization and resource management effectiveness
-- Presidential Focus/Cabinet accountable for progress, graded by a scorecard
-- E-government reflects IT’s role in modernization
3. Key Elements of IT Management are world class
-- Business cases, portfolios, and Earned-value data enabled IT projects to be managed as investments
-- Architecture used an analytical tool to focus modernization initiatives on agency performance identify leverage opportunities
-- IT security
