  Enterprise Framework

The Naval Aviation Enterprise is a partnership of key Naval Aviation stakeholders from the Navy and the Marine Corps. The Enterprise framework brings together the many parts that make up Naval Aviation in order to foster better decision-making that benefits Naval Aviation as a whole. By partnering in a collaborative manner, Naval Aviation is better able to produce warfighting readiness in the most cost-effective manner.

The Naval Aviation Enterprise derives its authority from NAVADMIN 204-06. In this NAVADMIN, the CNO identified the Navy's highest priority - to produce and deliver the most effective warfighting force to Combatant Commanders within the most efficient allocation of the Navy's resources. 

Naval Aviation’s enterprise approach facilitates cooperation with other commands, the provider domains and other organizations that impact Naval Aviation in order to improve the alignment of resources to achieve desired levels of readiness. The goal is an integrated approach to maximize readiness and efficiencies.

Enterprise Guiding Principles 

An enterprise, and specifically the Naval Aviation Enterprise, is a way of doing business that promotes enhanced coordination and collaboration to achieve effectiveness, emphasizes the efficient use of resources, and provides information to aid in decision-making. Naval Aviation implements an enterprise approach based on the following principles:

    1. Concentrate efforts on improving readiness, while sustaining fleet wholeness and increasing efficiencies.
    2. Exercise a bias for action.
    3. Drive systemically cross-functional, cross-command practices.
    4. Apply disciplined, process-driven, analytic methodologies.
    5. Understand the Single Fleet Driven Metric: Naval Aviation forces efficiently delivered for tasking.
    6. Use consistent, integrated and hierarchical metrics.
    7. Ensure full and consistent transparency of data, information and activities.
    8. Establish and maintain accountability for actions and results.
    9. Commit to active participation.
