Navy Warfare Development Command has established Web-Enabled Doctrine (WED) in an effort to enable the Navy's transition from platform-centric operations to Network Centric Operations. The focus of this research is to describe, analyze, and evaluate the current process of developing Navy Doctrine and whether that process can be enhanced with a commercially available distributive collaborative technology (DCT). The goal of WED is to ensure that Navy Doctrine remains operationally relevant and directly connected with the Fleet. WED hopes to accomplish this by active Fleet participation in doctrinal development and reducing timelines. The Chief of Naval Operations has set forth several priorities for the 21st century Navy, which include service unification, improved current and future readiness, and the leveraging of enabling technologies. Several commercially available DCT products appear promising to enable the Navy's transformation to web based Doctrine development. This research focuses on one such product to determine the adaptability of a DCT to the Navy Doctrine process. The process uses an information system network that allows personnel the ability to remain readily engaged in the form of discussion groups during doctrinal development. This reduces cost, time, and incorporates lessons learned from subject matter experts in the Fleet.
