Should the Gershon Report recommendations be taken word-by-word by the Australian Government in light of the unpredicted environment in which we are now living?
Is AGIMO just implementing the recommendations, ignoring how times have changed since the report was handed down, and the situation in which the world finds itself?
It seems no analysis is being done as to the different environment in which we are now working.
The Gershon Report was written for a different world (hard to believe that it was only 6 months ago ) — governments everywhere are having to rethink their plans and forecasts, not just in IT, and yet AGIMO has not articulated to anyone whether Gershon recommendations may be modified or translated into the current environment in which we find ourselves.
What should Minister Tanner do?
