This strategic plan charts the course of Navy Medicines priorities now and for the future. It cascades accountability throughout the organization, and establishes a framework to improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of Navy Medicine by identifying our strategic goals for the next three to five years and also by putting short-term goals and actions in place now that will allow us to reach those goals. This plan emphasizes Navy Medicines mission, vision, and Concept of Care which define our core values and guiding principles. Our plan complements national and departmental strategic guidance and describes our vital role in national security. The foundation of Navy Medicines strategic approach is our set of eight Tier 1 goals, which are high-level, strategic areas of priority supported by a number of Tier 2 goals that provide specific areas for action. Action plans have been developed for several of the Tier 2 goals, identifying specific tasks and timelines for achieving the goals. The real work to meet Navy Medicines goals is done at each command by every member of Navy Medicine. Local planning activities will include development of Tier 3 goals to ensure that each command is in alignment with the strategic plan and that local activities support the overall goals. Specific metrics were developed for each Tier 1 strategic goal, with the opportunity to further develop operational-level metrics for the Tier 2 goals as action plans are established. These measures translate our strategy into operations and offer transparency across our organization on how we are closing the performance gap of our strategic initiatives. Senior leadership monitors both the Tier 1 strategic measures and the Tier 2 action plans to track progress, identify areas in need of improvement, and celebrate success.
