The paper entitled Seven Steps to NMETL Advocacy should be your initial stop on your METL development journey. (to NMETL paper) From it, you should comprehend: METLs are the alignment Holy Gail!! Welcome to NMETLS! Whats Your Mission? Seven Steps to NMETL Advocacy 1.Learn the Framework and the Language 2. Drive for the Standard 3. Appreciate Conditions 4. Grasp Universal 5. Adopt the Process 6. Refine your Coup doeil 7. Apply at every opportunity
Page 3 The Navy Mission Essential Task List (NMETL) concept NMETL is very easy to say- but takes an Intellectual Capital investment to comprehend. NMETLs enable a commander to quantify both the level and scope of effort needed to achieve mission objectives. (NTTP 1-01, the Navys guidance for doctrine development) Many new programs are revolving around NMETL poles– the Navy Warfare Training System (NWTS) is just one of them. DRRS, JCIDS, T2 all require UNTL knowledge. CNOs Sea Enterprise message is another call for innovative leadership into continuous improvement systems and best practices. Welcome to NMETLS! Whats Your Mission? Programs Training Readiness Planning Operations Futures Ref Docs: UJTL UNTL Transformation CJCS/ CNO Guidance Joint Training Fleet Training DRRS JCIDS Dynamics Research Corporation provides the most knowledgeable and experienced NMETL Practitioners.
Page 4 NMETLS align and focus all continuous improvement processes CONOPS and METLs Both are products of Mission Analysis Going in with no CONOPS, NMETL helps frame it. Going in with CONOPS, NMETL helps improve it! The primary purpose of the NMETL is to be the target and alignment tool for all improved mission performance. The NMETL itself should be improved whenever we can advance the articulation of the tasks, conditions or standards or supporting commands responsibilities. Welcome to NMETLS! Whats Your Mission?

Strategic to Operational to Tactical. Universal process can also be applied throughout DOD and other federal, state, and local government agencies and by installations, other institutions and NGOs.
Page 6 Lead the growing awareness of the wide range for developing and practical employment of NMETLs – DRRS, CFFC NMETLs, COMNAVAIRPAC NMETLs, EOD NMETLs and use in JEOD, MMA, ACS capabilities development Also developed tools such as JTIMS, TurboMET, MATRICS (new MMF tool), and the Value Modeling Tool.

Page 8 Mission Training METL development for Requirements phase of Joint Training System (JTS)/ Navy Warfare Training System (NWTS) Training curricula development for Plans phase of JTS/ NWTS- from staffs through collective and unit training down to individual skills attainment and mastery Execution Phase data collection planning, assembly and analysis- Value Model Tool for assessing performance. Assessments for reporting readiness, developing DOTMLP-F solutions, and implementing best practices and lessons learned. Links to Human System Integration and maximizing human performance
Page 9 Readiness DRRS is MET-based. METLs should help us get to Metrics that matter!
Page 10 Planning New capabilities used by DOD is the means to accomplish a set of tasks to standards under specified conditions. Very MET- like! Adaptive force packaging looks for MET collection and readiness indicators to match COCOM demands to most ready and available forces.
Page 11 Operations METL standards can drive performance. Great potential for Enterprise-wide alignment and control with systems of linked METLs. Understanding METLs can match commander demands with available forces.
Page 12 Futures JCIDS and DOD 5000 series call for capabilities development Capabilities now expressed in a Task-Conditions- Standards format similar to METLs. Capabilities Development – for the Warfighter to execute mission tasks; for the Trainer to conduct Warfighter training; for the Test and Evaluation community to conduct test and evaluation to JCIDS standards.
Page 13 UJTL DRC developed earliest versions of UJTL. Most UJTL guidance still in effect today! Link to Joint Training:
Page 15 Future UTL for government-wide applications Clausewitz: War is the continuation of politics by other means. The Mission Analysis to METL framework can be applied in HLS as well as Commerce, Treasury, HUD and EPA. Therefore, the goal should be to find ways to describe the sections of the UJTL (Deploy and maneuver; Develop intel.; Engage the enemy; Sustain; Communicate, Command & Control; and Protect) in six more universally acceptable groups that each of these naturally were developed from: –Movement –Learning about the situation –Engagement and employing our capabilities –Sustain –Communicate, direct, coordinate and plan –Protect
Page 16 DOD Transformation modeled on JTS process Transformation is a Process! DOD Transformation can be conceptualized as running on a four-phased continuous improvement engine fueled by lessons learned (Figure). DOD Transformations website describes it thusly: Transformation is foremost a continuing process that does not have an end point. It is meant to create or anticipate the future…. The overall objective of these changes is simply – sustained American competitive advantage in warfare. The Defense Readiness Reporting System and all new joint capabilities require METLs or MET-like descriptions for expressing mission performance requirements. The Navy Warfare Training System (NWTS) employs NMETLs as the basis for fleet training programs. However, NMETLs are considerately more applicable, comprehensive and enlightening than just being used for Fleet training!
Page 17 Immutable Nature of War vs its Character and Conduct What plans would the historical Hannibal, Caesar or Napoleon or a modern Nimitz or Burke make to move and maneuver, gather Battlespace awareness, apply fighting power, sustain, command and control, and protect their forces? When you break it down, their tasks were not much different than what we must do today- just the systems, and our Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP) have changed to meet the new threat or operating environment. In new DOD terminology, these six areas have been characterized as the Elements of Defense Transformation and they also represent the Nature of War based framework of the Universal Joint Task List (UJTL). Tasks can be described to a universal understanding across organizations and missions. Using conditions and standards, we transform mere tasks into METLs to fit the circumstances- the character and conduct of war.

Page 20 Fleet Training DRC assisted CFFC in NWTS evolution from JTS DRC assisted in all fleet NMETL development efforts and has provided continuous support to NWTS since inception. DRC (Brown) leads as the Navys NMETL advocate!
Page 21 DRRS Defense Readiness Reporting System is MET based. Key to understanding readiness is good expression of mission requirement through the MET construct. DRCs knowledge in the mission analysis-to-METL process is unmatched.
Page 22 JCIDS Capabilities stated using Tasks, Conditions, Standards language of the UJTL. Future force structure planning will incorporate METs to define capabilities Using Capability as the means to accomplish a set of tasks to standards under specified conditions. Now can conceive/design/build/test/man and equip future force structure to meet the rising challenges and counter enemy advances.
