This thesis focuses on key factors that increase organizational effectiveness at the Royal Norwegian Navy Material Command. These factors include implementing work processes throughout the whole organization, implementing information technologies that support work processes, and the use of teamwork across functional areas to solve organizational and technical problems. Using integrated teams, matched technologies, and tailored work processes in several material programs, RNoNMC observed an increase in quality in the form of quicker results with fewer revisions. Teamwork methods emphasize a systems view towards organizational and technical solutions that integrate the human needs, the technology and the organization. The RNoNMC can further increase its organizational effectiveness by implementing similar principles to the whole organization. Members of the organization should actively participate in designing and implementing work processes with technologies that support individual, program, and organizational needs. Routine tasks can be automated and time can be more effectively used on solving complex problems. integrating all parts of the organization in problem solving processes creates an environment of continuous learning. The recommendations presented derive from a study of change processes in previous programs, socio-technical systems theory, and the expected benefits of information technologies in the work place.
