- Planning is a regularly scheduled activity. Besides planning for special events, planning may be scheduled weekly for tracking progress toward goals.
- Planning occurs at all levels. Commands, departments, divisions, and work centers plan.
- Planning is long range. A work center may have a monthly long-range planning meeting in addition to weekly short-range operational planning sessions.
- Plans are specific. Plans are documented with milestone charts and a matrix showing who is responsible and when tasks are due.
- Plans are publicized. Plans are not the private information of leaders but are published in the Plan of the Day (POD), posted on bulkheads, and explained at quarters.
- Systems are put in place to implement plans. Routine tasks and operations are standardized with someone in charge of the process.
- The Command makes every effort to stick to the plan. Plans are taken seriously. Though circumstances may require it to change, considerable effort is put into abiding by the plan.
Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.
