New management, arriving in Colombo in July 2002, soon after the first mission, sensed an unusually strong interest at the highest levels of government and business in seeking Bank assistance for this new and untested area. On its recommendation, the Bank’s regional management allowed the project team a chance to visit Sri Lanka again—as long as it came back with a simpler and much smaller Designing e–Sri Lanka: Process, Principles, Lessons 15 program, perhaps even a pilot for a first phase, and as long as it addressed many of the constraints on ICT mainstreaming and practice in the Bank.
