These are 1) the Value Chain, 2) Customer Value Proposition, and 3) Strategic Shift Agenda. Once these are identified, the unit/ organization will now be able to formulate its balanced scorecard.

Cascading of the Sail Plan: Updates
Alignment of the APB Deliberation with the Sail Plan. Besides the cascading process of the Sail Plan to all PN units and personnel, alignment process of the Sail Plan also involves the integration of the organization’s strategy with the annual budgeting process. To ensure that all PN Units and Offices will contribute in paving the way for the PN to be a strong and credible Navy by 2020, the Center for Naval Leadership and Excellence (CNLE) and the other members of the HPN Staff worked handin-hand during the Annual Plan and Budget (APB) Deliberation for CY 2012. Members of the Budget Working Group (BWG) were keen in assessing the proposed programs, projects and activities of all PN Units and Offices against the strategy laid out in the PN Sail Plan. More details on the APB Deliberation and BWG will be discussed on the next issue of The Naval Leader. FMRF Cascading of the Sail Plan Conference.
