Center for Navy Business Excellence a catalyst for business transformation

In order to remain relevant in the face of both national and global challenges, the U.S. Navy must recognize that its once useful organizational constructs and business operations that fought the Cold War must be supplanted by significantly more nimble and effective organizations and business models. To realize the Force Transformation vision as outlined by Sea Power 21, the Navy must be vigilant in transforming its business operations. The Navy has devised several business improvement strategies, most notably Sea Enterprise, but has not institutionalized a process to refine and translate these strategies into actionable, measurable business goals. The missing piece, a center of business excellence, would integrate the strategic management of business transformation, unite future business improvement opportunities, provide an operational-level business excellence resource, and aid business initiative implementation throughout the Navy enterprise. The Center for Navy Business Excellence (CNBE) leverages six business transformation enablers throughout the Navy: Business Management Integration, Business Intelligence, Communities of Practice, Corporate Universities, Embedded Human Capital Programs, and Consultants. By incorporating these six enablers, CNBE gives the Navy the operational capability to convert business transformation strategy into a tangible, measurable, business improvement roadmap. CNBE increases the likelihood that the Navy achieves the remarkable Sea Enterprise vision and arms the CNO with an expert, internal, business intelligence, implementation, and outreach capability.
