Abstract:

This thesis is a case study of the implementation of telecommuting by CalComp at the Telecommuting Workcenter of Riverside County and is a real life example of the management issues that surround telecommuting. The issues brought forth in this study will enable those responsible for implementing a telecommuting program to better understand the impact of this change on their organization and how a telecommuting center may be used in their program. Using this study as background, the military use of telecommuting for U.S. Navy detailers will be developed. Developing a peace time telecommuting program could help train Navy personnel to function as a remote staff member for a Battle Group or Joint Commander. A conceptual application of telecommuting for the Department of the Navy DON could be to allow selected officer and enlisted detailers to telecommute up to three days a week. This insight, properly used, will help program managers avoid problems that other programs have experienced during their transition to telecommuting. This insight, properly used, will help the program managers avoid problems other programs have had during the transition to telecommuting. Recommendations for further research and use of telecommuting for the Department Of The Navy are provided.
