To achieve greater security, efficiency, and environmental stewardship, the Navy must adopt new technologies, new graduate education, and new corporate practices. These elements require “new thinking” that will take time. To accelerate the adoption of DoN energy goals much sooner and more effectively than traditional change efforts would enable, the Secretary of the Navy needs to raise the level of energy literacy and arm key influencers to catalyze new policies, programs and practices across the DoN. The Cebrowski Institute will help the Secretariat accelerate culture change by quickly shifting corporate energy understanding, insight, and practices of Navy executives .
Security, efficiency and environmental stewardship form the cornerstones of Navy’s energy strategy. In October of 2009, the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) challenged Navy with five stretch goals:
The Department of the Navy (DON) will need to innovate new technologies, educate its workforce, and change its corporate practices in order to accelerate compelling, relevant, & sustainable solutions. The SECNAV Energy Series will develop executives in strategic and innovative corporate practices that will enable Navy’s energy strategy of greater security, efficiency and environmental stewardship. For systemic culture change, consider the potential impact of affecting the following four aspects of the DON:
The private sector and the Office of Naval Research will create the new technologies and the Naval Postgraduate School will deliver the graduate education for the armed services. Mr. Tom Hicks, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, has requested the Cebrowski Institute to investigate the design, development, and delivery of an executive education program that focuses on changing the corporate practices of the Navy.
