|Abstract:||In recent years, there has been an increasing push into electronic services by governments worldwide. In turn, this has new implications for the information systems (IS) functions residing within various government authorities and agencies. In particular, such government bodies are now very concerned about their IS related budget justifications and the associated quality of public services provided. Based on the literature, we begin our study by exploring the implementation of Total Quality Management (TQM) initiatives within a major government agency in Singapore. By analyzing the empirical data collected, we assess the project implementation impact of established TQM concepts on the longitudinal process of realizing the business value of IT. In particular, we discover the importance of multi-level leadership in facilitating the successful implementation of such TQM initiatives. We conclude with a proposed conceptual framework to guide future research in this area and with implications for practitioners.|
