This thesis discusses the need for an information technology system to facilitate cross-unit collaboration in the Botswana Defence Force (BDF). The existing traditional means of communication and information sharing among the BDF units and bases do not meet the present requirements and may negatively impact productivity and mission readiness in the BDF. The thesis begins with a background discussion of the communication problems in the BDF and examines the problem in the context of designing and implementing an Enterprise Information Portal (EIP). This would facilitate the collaboration and the flow of information within and among units throughout different regions in Botswana. The approach to the problem involves defining an EIP, evaluating the benefits of an EIP and assessing technologies critical to implementing an EIP. After defining an EIP, a business plan is presented to provide a guideline for implementing the Botswana Defence Force Enterprise Information Portal (BDF-EIP). The thesis further discusses organizational challenges that may affect implementing the BDF-EIP. These organizational issues include a discussion on change, change management and champion.Naval Postgraduate School Monterey CA is the author of 'Enterprise Information Portal for Cross-Unit Collaboration in Botswana Defence Force', published 2002 under ISBN 9781423549598 and ISBN 1423549597.
