Abstract: The Central bank of Ghana has recently supervised the implementation of E-zwich, an innovative common payment platform to unify the payment systems of all banks and other financial institutions in the country, and a biometric smartcard for secure payment of goods and services. Despite the several advantages that E-zwich promises, there are challenges that need to be addressed to enable the stakeholders receive the full benefit that the system has to offer. In this paper, we perform SWOT analysis on the implementation of the E-zwich system, and map the findings from the SWOT analysis to PPT and GTZ management frameworks models. The mapping can serve as standards to enhance the successful implementation of such systems.
