This chapter describes and analyzes the experience of the Egyptian government in spreading the awareness of information technology and its use in managing socio-economic development through building multiple information handling and decision support systems in messy, turbulent and changing environments. The successes over the past 10 years in developing, implementing and sustaining state-of-the-art decision support systems for central governmental decision making holds many lessons for the implementation of sophisticated systems under conditions of extreme difficulty.
