Tailored Support


The Course

The Tailored Support (TS) Course is designed to help Navy flag officers ensure a seamless transition to a new command or senior staff positions resulting in improved organizational effectiveness and efficiency. Participants learn strategies and techniques that can help ensure success with the "on boarding" (first 90 days) process and avoid common "derailers." The components of a comprehensive transition plan are provided as a framework for use by participants as they develop their own plans. The customized, one-on-one course comprises coursework specifically tailored for the individual flag officer's upcoming assignment.

Objective/Desired End State

A cadre of Navy flag officers armed with the strategic knowledge, skills and ability to effectively and efficiently assume leadership of a new command.
