PSNS & IMF releases version 2.0 of its Strategic Framework

By PSNS & IMF Public Affairs

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility rolled out version 2.0 of its Strategic Framework, Oct. 30.

The Strategic Framework, originally established in 2017, has been used to communicate the command’s direction and how the shipyard achieves its mission to maintain, modernize and retire the Navy’s fleet. This update marks the second version of the Strategic Framework and includes updates to the strategies, values and results used to better align the command’s efforts in order to meet the needs of the Navy.


A brief overview of some of the improvements made to the original framework includes:

Mission and Vision

Since the command’s mission and vision clearly communicate what they do, why they do it and what they strive to achieve, those statements remain the same.

Color Scheme

The colors have been refreshed in keeping with the command’s recently unveiled logo.

Guiding Principles

Leadership will place a greater emphasis on the Guiding Principles – what guides shipyard behavior and actions.


Industry-standard results of safety, quality, delivery, cost and morale have been added to the strategic framework.



Safety has been added to acknowledge that working toward an injury-free workplace is essential to the well-being of shipyard workers and meeting the needs of the fleet. A culture of safety includes a comprehensive, integrated system for managing and improving safety across all work and activities.

Product Delivery

Formerly known as Project and Product Line Management, the title change to Product Delivery clarifies the purpose is to integrate everything needed to make workflow – all products and processes.


The Innovation tagline has been enhanced to “Turning ideas into action” as a clear-cut way of stating the result needed to create and implement ways  to meet the vision to deliver on time, every time.


Leadership determined the existing strategy to develop people to be their best remains timely, relevant and important.

In the coming weeks and months shipyard leadership will discuss specific plans and goals with shipyard workers about each of the framework’s principles, strategies and results.

PSNS & IMF employs more than 15,000 Sailors and civilians who accomplish the shipyard’s mission to maintain, modernize and retire the U.S. Navy Fleet.
