The US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare division in San Diego boasts nearly 5,000 civilian and active duty personnel organized into functional program offices. As a result of wartime realignment efforts across the Department of Defense, the leadership of SPAWAR San Diego was tasked by the Pentagon to develop a reorganization plan along warfighting capabilities, funding lines and other urgent national priorities. SPAWAR leadership was concerned about the kind of pushback they might receive that could significantly stall the reorganization process.
The Gregg Ward Group conducted an organization-wide survey and over 32 separate individual interviews with each Program Manager and Deputy Program Manager at SPAWAR to gather reorganization recommendations and gain “buy in” on the process. Report and Recommendations were delivered at a Leadership Offsite.
As a result of the Gregg Ward Group Report and Recommendations, buy-In on the reorganization by all program offices was much greater than anticipated, resulting in a much smoother running, robust reorganization.
