Uechi completes book on public dimensions of information technology
Edward Uechi ’08 MPA has written Public Service Information Technology: The
Definitive Manager’s Guide to Harnessing Technology of Cost-Effective
Operations and Services (Productivity Press, 2020).
Uechi’s book explores the complex
intersections between various areas of information technology (IT) management.
By demonstrating how constructing computer information systems requires both
technical and business management skills, Uechi is able to demystify how IT
operate in language tailored to a non-specialist audience. In doing so, Uechi
provides suggestions concerning how public managers and senior executives can
harness the power of IT systems for the benefit of their own work. With a
number of worksheets and practical guidelines, Public Service Information Technology makes the complex world of
computing technology immediately accessible to those seeking ways to directly
transform and improve the world.
Uechi has worked in information technology
since 1996, beginning as a computer technician and now an internationally
recognized IT manager. After transitioning from Silicon Valley’s private sector
to nonprofit work, Uechi worked as a consultant on projects supported by USAID
and the World Food Program. He has also provided technical, organizational, and
management assistance to both governments and corporations across Africa and
the Middle East.
