The Enterprise Team (Business Relationship Reengineering).When you drill down through the layers of Department of Defense directives, policy memorandums and dynamic briefing charts, the Enterprise Team is exposed for what it truly is, a concept, not a group of individuals or organizations. What you will find is a dedicated, mission focused approach to the principles of security assistance. Driven by the vision and strategic objectives of our political and military leadership, the Enterprise Team demonstrates that collectively there exist the experience, knowledge and energy to accomplish several of the high profile and high priority missions at hand. Professionalism and commitment, not policy nor procedures, were the origin and motivation of the Enterprise Team.
Who Is the Enterprise Team?
Four separate organizations, spanning three military services and a joint command, labor daily to execute highly complex projects and programs in direct support of U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives.
In a 4 August 2000 memorandum, the Advanced Distributed Learning Regional Engagement Network (ADL/REN) was established as an activity of the United States Joint Forces Command United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) is one of ten Unified Combatant Commands of the United States military. Unlike the six commands with responsibility for war plans and operations in specified portions of the world, USJFCOM is a functional command that provides , Suffolk, Virginia. The ADL/REN represents a worldwide coordinated approach to using regional data services networks for coalition education and training through advanced distributed learning. The backbone of the ADL/REN is a capability to distribute a Computer Assisted Exercise (CAX CAX
The ISO 4217 currency code for Canadian Cent. ) across national borders. The roots of the ADL/REN can be found in the highly successful Partnership for Peace (PfP) simulation network demonstration conducted at the April 1999 NATO summit.
The Naval Air Warfare Center The Naval Air Warfare Center was a former U.S. Navy military installation located in Warminster, Pennsylvania and Ivyland, Pennsylvania.
The U.S. Navy purchased the grounds to establish this facility from the Brewster Aeronautical Corporation following its bankruptcy in the Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD NAWCTSD Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division ), Orlando, Florida, a subordinate organization of the Naval Air Systems Command The Naval Air Systems Command, or NAVAIR, is the part of the United States Navy which provides materiel support for naval aircraft and airborne weapon systems, such as guided missiles. NAVAIR was established in 1966 as the successor to the Navy's Bureau of Naval Weapons (BuWeps). , executes security assistance as delegated by the Navy International Programs Office. The U.S Navy by a June 1999 Secretary of Defense memorandum is charged with processing all foreign military sales That portion of United States security assistance authorized by the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, and the Arms Export Control Act of 1976, as amended. This assistance differs from the Military Assistance Program and the International Military Education and Training Program letters of offer and acceptance funded under the auspicious of the Enhanced International Peacekeeping Capabilities (EIPC) program. The EIPC program, by Congressional mandate, is focused solely on peace support operations and training.
The National Military Command Center Located in the Pentagon, the National Military Command Center houses the logistical and communications center for the National Command Authority of the United States of America. (NMCC) initiative is a product of the United States Air Force United States Air Force (USAF)
Major component of the U.S. military organization, with primary responsibility for air warfare, air defense, and military space research. It also provides air services in coordination with the other military branches. U.S. , Electronics Systems Center (ESC), Hanscom AFB AFB

The NIMCC NIMCC Naval Intelligence Mid-Career Course program is designed to provide a low cost, capable, national command center for crisis management. It encourages regional cooperation, the utilization of civil and military resources, and a tool to manage local crisis. The NMCC will be of considerable assistance to the U.S., NATO and the region during periods of crisis.
A major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Materiel Command Army Materiel Command can refer to:
STRICOM Simulation, Training & Instrumentation Command (US Army) ), Orlando, Florida, manages a robust and expanding security assistance program, with guidance from the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command (USASAC USASAC United States Army Security Assistance Command
USASAC United States Army Security Assistance Center
USASAC United States Army Security Affairs Command
USASAC United States Army Seoul Area Command ). STRICOM is currently supporting a computer based war-game constructive simulation capability in over thirty countries worldwide, twenty within the European Command area of responsibility and eight Partnership for Peace members.
The Value of Teaming!
The capability to conduct training for peace support operations, under the auspices of the EJPC program managed by NAWCTSD, largely involves the establishment of electronic classrooms, in accordance with U. S. Classroom XXI and the principles of advanced distributed learning. The core equipment list for these facilities involves workstation personal computers, local area networks (LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The "clients" are the user's workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. ), and classroom presentation and projection equipment. A typical simulation center that STRICOM provides under FMS FMS - Flexible Manufacturing System (factory automation). programs involves 12 to 16 workstation personal computers, LAN capability, required operating software and the requested model or simulation. A distributed computer assisted exercise (CAX) capability that would support the requirement of the USJFCOM USJFCOM United States Joint Forces Command ADL/REN entails a number of personal computer workstations, LAN, video teleconferencing capability, routers, IMUX (an inverse multi-plexor), and other peripheral hardware. Additional workstations, operating system and command and control software, allows a facility to b egin resembling a national military control center as proposed by ESC.
The commonality of hardware requirements and the potential for a building block approach throughout these separate but similar efforts is fairly obvious when described as above. However, without an Enterprise Team approach amongst the organizations executing these programs, it is not as obvious. Others involved in these individual projects, such as host nation representatives, or U.S. security assistance officers in country, or the Department of Defense security assistance leadership, do not possess a vantage point to recognize these potential technical and functional leveraging and cost saving opportunities.
The Enterprise Team Charter
The undersigned agree to optimize investments, reduce overlap and avoid redundancy in the execution of assigned programs in support of U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives. Our strategy is to execute these assigned programs in a collaborative method to:
* Leverage funding streams
* Leverage multiple programs
* Identify and establish common equipment specifications
* Maintain channels of communication and speak as one voice while addressing the peacekeeping and war-fighting training requirements of PfP and other countries.
As the Enterprise Team conducts its daily activities and exercises this business relationship re-engineering concept within the European Command area of responsibility, we will take maximum advantage of lessons learned, share these lessons with others, and welcome additional organizations and activities that support the principles of the charter. As similar projects and programs begin to surface in other areas of the world, we will maintain the channels of communication established under the current charter, and assess their potential for application of the Enterprise Team approach as well.
