The Naval Aviation Enterprise is a partnership of supported and supporting stakeholders that is led by the Navy and Marine Corps. It is a mature construct whose continuing relevance is maintained through its ability to evolve to best support Naval Aviation readiness requirements. Through the NAE, Naval Aviation stakeholders work as one team across the warfighter, resource sponsor and provider domains.
Naval Aviation is an essential element of national strategy, and it must combine the right warfighting capabilities with the necessary readiness to bring those capabilities to bear. The NAE serves as the single framework for facilitating collaboration, transparency, cross-functional engagement, information sharing and process improvements that are necessary to deliver those essential capabilities and readiness. Every NAE stakeholder is committed to this mission.
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.
NAE leadership is committed to these principles that act as a guide for everyday decisions:
1. Concentrate efforts on producing required readiness while sustaining Fleet wholeness and improving efficiency.
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 ready for tasking in the numbers required to meet Navy and Marine Corps readiness and warfighting requirements.
6. Use consistent, integrated and hierarchical metrics focused on Fleet readiness and sustainment.
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.
