My Personnel Serial (here) transitions the discussions we've had over the last two months to an action plan that will:
1) Accelerate the progress we've made in shifting our staff from an "administrative staff" to a "command staff."
2) Redistribute personnel (and resources) down echelon from "tail" to "tooth."
3) Reestablish the virtuous cycle between training (school house), tactical (platform) and technical (maintenance activities and program offices) with the focal point/end user being the deployable unit - ACHIEVING AND SUSTAINING THE REQUIRED OPERATIONAL READINESS OF OUR SHIPS, SUBMARINES, AVIATION SQUADRONS AND EXPEDITIONARY UNITS MUST COME FIRST IN OUR ACTIONS AND BE THE FOCAL POINT OF ALL WE DO.
Although all of the action discussed in the Serial is directed at my staff, we will all need to pull together to ensure the policy changes we're putting in place achieve the intended effects and the personnel/resources that move down-echelon hit the critical targets.
All the best, JCHjr
