Nowadays governments have recognized the need to improve their relationship with citizens, and to put citizens' needs at the center of government thinking. Citizen relationship management (CzRM) is derived from the commercial concept customer relationship management (CRM). In this paper, the value chain model of CzRM is proposed, which combines a set of functionalities obtained from CRM and good governance literature. This model is a framework for understanding current situation of CzRM and opportunities for improvement which enables governments to become more citizens centric. Finally, the results of implementing the proposed model in an Iranian governmental organization are presented as an empirical study.
