There is a growing need for better project management in e-Government endeavors to bring together people with diverse knowledge and skills so they can develop and implement project activities effectively and efficiently. This paper is a research report on eGTPM (e-Government Transformation Project Management) platform, a project management tool which assists implementers and decision-makers in e-Government project planning and control. eGTPM Platform improves most existing commercial tools by integrating goal orientation and dynamic enterprise modeling (DEM) principles into the knowledge building tool developed at the Decision Systems Laboratory in National Technical University of Athens. By employing goal orientation and DEM principles' concepts, eGTPM facilitates communication and collaboration among all involved parties in order to jointly identify project needs and requirements and to reduce the number of changes due to misunderstandings. eGTPM also includes a knowledge based project control advisor which contains heuristic knowledge to guide users to possible design alternatives. The paper describes eGTPM's components and possible directions for future work.
