New vision and mission to guide AFMC

New vision and mission statements are at the foundation of a new command strategy designed to ensure Air Force Materiel Command continues to deliver preeminent support to the war fighter.

The command’s vision is “one team, delivering capabilities to fly, fight and win …today and tomorrow.” AFMC will strive to attain that vision by accomplishing its mission to “equip the Air Force for world-dominant airpower.”

Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, AFMC commander, said the new vision and mission statements leave no doubt as to the command’s resolve.

“AFMC exists to provide our airmen and allies with the best war fighting systems and equipment – bar none,” Wolfenbarger said. “Our strategic plan with its vision and mission statements better defines what the nearly 82,000 people of AFMC deliver to the fight.”

The new strategic plan includes clear command priorities supported by goals. Objectives and metrics will be developed in the coming weeks that will define and measure the success of AFMC in executing its critical roles. The plan can be found at http://www.afmc.af.mil/shared/media/document/AFD-130122-013.pdf.

The plan comes at an important time in AFMC’s history as the command refines its new five-center command structure. “This plan gives us a roadmap to help guide our new 5-center construct and achieve an even higher level of war fighter support at a point in history where money and resources are extremely constrained,” Wolfenbarger said.

Earlier this year, AFMC began a well-planned, deliberate process of reducing the command’s number of centers from 12 to five in an effort to become more effective and efficient with standardized and repeatable processes command-wide. The five centers reached initial operating capability Oct. 1.

AFMC’s ability to deliver airpower will be measured and reported to command leadership on a regular basis. The command will, in turn, be able to illustrate how well it is accomplishing its mission to stakeholders inside and outside the Air Force.

Wolfenbarger emphasized that mission measurements will be results-oriented. “We will measure real productivity, not simply activity,” the general said.

The five centers are Air Force Research Laboratory and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, both headquartered at Wright-Patterson AFB; Air Force Test Center, headquartered at Edwards AFB, Calif.; Air Force Sustainment Center, headquartered at Tinker, AFB, Okla.; and the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, headquartered at Kirtland AFB, N.M.
