Mission Implementation Plan

Deliver Information Warfare Professionals Ready for Warfighting on Day One

We will ensure everyone we train, regardless of whether new accession or fleet-returnee, meets all academic and administrative requirements to be tactically and technically proficient, in order to deliver warfighting effects immediately upon graduation. We will develop and execute domain-wide solutions to improve the speed and efficiency of curriculum development and delivery to the fleet in order to respond to the rapidly changing maritime and cyber domains.


Be a Facts-Based, Results-Driven Organization

The successes of the Information Warfare Community have come when we have relied on a dispassionate view of the operating environment. This sets the conditions for us to amass a questioning mindset and a bias toward creativity and innovation, in order to enable decision-making and achieve results. We will embrace data-driven, informed analysis as the basis of our decision-making, and share those methodologies across the domain to improve transparency, accountability, teamwork, and staff engagement.


Exist as a Culture of Excellence

We are best when we operate at the highest of standards. The interactions Sailors have with our learning sites may be among the first they have with the Navy, and are therefore likely to be the most impactful. Our day-to-day conduct and our ability to do the routine well and consistently, especially within student administration, is among the ways that we demonstrate a culture of excellence. Keep in mind, how we interact with one another sets the standard going forward for our student population. We will serve as an advocate for our subordinate commands, working with them to remove barriers and maintain accountability so our learning sites can focus on producing the next generation of Information Warfare professionals and warfighters.
