AFMC releases updated strategic plan Published July 15, 2020 By Marisa Alia-Novobilski Air Force Materiel Command WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Air Force Materiel Command released an updated strategic plan recently, identifying four key focus areas, as the organization continues to ensure the U.S. Air and Space Forces remain ready to fly, fight and win today and into the future. “AFMC built the most powerful Air Force in the world and our nation still depends on us to build and power the Air Force of the future,” stated Gen. Arnold W. Bunch, Jr., AFMC Commander, in the plan's foreword. “Our adversaries have eroded our technological advantage and have presented us with new challenges and opportunities. We must operate at the speed of relevance to counter these threats and develop, deliver, support, and sustain the most lethal and ready Air Force in the world.” In addition to identifying a refreshed command mission and vision statement, the plan identifies four key lines of effort aimed at ensuring the command can meet the needs of the National Defense Strategy today and into the future. These four LOEs focus on: readiness and lethality; delivery with disciplined speed; strengthening the AFMC team; and fostering trusted connections. Each LOE contains specific objectives designed to guide AFMC teams to meet the shared vision identified in the strategy. The new plan also includes a specific objective to address diversity, equality and inclusion under LOE 3: Strengthen Our Team, aimed at ensuring the command attracts, develops and retains diverse Airmen and maintains a culture and climate where all can thrive.
