Abstract

The SA Defence Force (SADF), in common with other organisations and people in the Republic, is experiencing considerable upheaval and change in the four acknowledged power bases: socio-political; economic; technological and military. This upheaval and change is highly visible to some in the organisation, less visible to others and to some, merely perceived as discomfort or uncertainty in what is usually seen as a very stable organisation. Members of the SADF who are involved daily with long-range planning of, for example, manpower requirements or the development of equipment and material are more likely to perceive the effects of change from their lofty positions than are their colleagues faced with the day-to-day battle for survival.
