Information : Vision 2000
Vision 2000 is a visual alignment tool that provides information on Raytheon Missile Systems Company’s (RMSC’s) vision, goals, and accountabilities. This shared vision is part of everything that represents RMSC; forms the basis for its strategic plans and annual goals; and provides the framework for managing its enterprise. Figure 3-5 shows RMSC’s Vision 2000 chart.
After merging with General Dynamics in 1993 and consolidating the missile design/manufacturing lines from five sites to a single one at Tucson, the new organization needed a common focus. Vision 2000 was developed by a cross-functional team of employees who worked closely with management for six months. Since then, this tool has become the overarching guide for change and improvement at RMSC.
Vision 2000 enables RMSC to concentrate on the five focus areas (customer satisfaction, competitiveness, quality, people development, and financial performance) that are important to the company’s overall business. Results in these focus areas have been impressive, including decreases in manufacturing cycle time, and a 50% reduction in defects per year for the past four years. Because of its significant impact on improving all aspects of company performance, this alignment tool has been implemented by many of RMSC’s customer groups, as well as adopted as a strategic planning tool by Davis Monthan Air Force Base. Vision 2000 has proven to be an effective and flexible tool for organizational alignment, and can adjust to new initiatives as they are employed in the five focus
