JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas – The Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center released its updated strategic plan Jan. 25, identifying new goals and objectives for helping two services, nine major commands and 83 installations execute their missions and take care of Airmen, Guardians and families around the world.

“This formal update to our strategic plan includes highlights of our work in 2021 along with an introduction to new goals and objectives,” said Maj. Gen. Tom Wilcox, AFIMSC commander, in the plan foreword. “They will continue to evolve as we move forward, maintain a cycle of continuous improvement and pursue excellence.”

The updated strategy also includes links to news coverage showing real-world impacts of AFIMSC’s work.

“Everything we do must be relevant and valuable to commanders, Airmen, Guardians and families we support,” Wilcox said.

To fine-tune its strategy, AFIMSC added four new goals across its three major areas, or Lines of Effort, of mission focus: increase lethality and readiness; strengthen Airmen and families; and pursue organizational excellence.

Create Data Driven Execution Plan Process: Using a deliberate process, this goal delivers a viable path toward developing a data driven execution plan tool supporting each installation and mission support portfolio.

Integrate Air Base Command and Control: This goal seeks to optimize decision-making by integrating legacy and emerging IT systems and processes used for installation support and emergency management.

Implement Office of the Future: This goal focuses on objectives for building and benchmarking a better, radically new way of working at AFIMSC called the Office of the Future, or O2F. 

Build an Inclusive and Equitable Culture/Environment: Through fostering and sustaining an inclusive organizational infrastructure and practices, this goal seeks to ensure AFIMSC employees uphold the center’s strategy for maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce.

For AFIMSC, a continued focus on strategy is helping the center stay focused on what matters most every day, said Trish Marshall, AFIMSC Strategy chief.  

“Strategy is baked into daily decision making across the center and has really become part of our culture,” she said. “We established a regular rhythm for looking at our strategic goal and objectives so we can keep moving in the right direction and adjust as needed to deliver exceptional installation and mission support.”
