Abstract


The development of e-government in Indonesia began in 2003 with the release of the President‟s Instruction: the National Policy and Strategy Development of e-government. Until then the Indonesian people did not receive high quality government services through the e-government service provision. From a global perspective, the United Nations in 2004-2010 ranked Indonesia in the low level of e-government readiness. This research paper aims to explore public service performance and leadership in the use of e-government, especially concerning the responsiveness of e-government to the public. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches were used in this study. Seventy one Indonesian ministries and provinces and one hundred and fifteen districts were used in the research sample. Their websites were analyzed to provide the quantitative data.  A purposive technique was used to select the informants for the qualitative data and was based on responses given through e-mail communication with selected websites. The level of responsiveness of e-government sites was analyzed according to the availability of the contact link, functionality of the contact link, and the speed of response to the users‟ email.
The analysis of the quantitative data from the study found that the responsiveness level of the Indonesian e-government sites sampled was very low. This was indicated by the majority of the website administrators who did not respond to every email from their users.  The qualitative findings of this study suggest that e-leadership and workplace learning are very important factors for the implementation of e-government in Indonesia. The major issue of e-government is not the technical aspect but the understanding between the people in the organization, including the leadership, and the opportunity for employees to learn new technology in their workplace. These were the critical factors identified by participants for the successful implementation of e-government.
Given the paternalistic character of Indonesian society, which is characterized by a top-down management pattern, it can be argued that the implementation of good practice in e-government should be initiated by the leaders of government organizations.  E-leadership is leadership that combines existing leadership models with the development of new technology skills. E-leaders need to be prepared to take advantage of the latest technological developments so they can influence employees. E-leaders should also espouse the values of the e-government approach and reinforce its importance through a structured program of workplace training.
