3 Welcome to NMETLS! What’s Your Mission? ProgramsTrainingReadinessPlanningOperationsFuturesRef Docs:UJTLUNTLTransformationCJCS/ CNO GuidanceJoint TrainingFleet TrainingDRRSJCIDSThe 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 Navy’s 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.CNO’s Sea Enterprise message is another call for innovative leadership into continuous improvement systems and best practices.Top Left Hand are links to pages covering each topic.Bottom Links are to reference pages on web.Pushing the DRC Banner takes you to slide 2.Dynamics Research Corporation provides the most knowledgeable and experienced NMETL Practitioners.

8 Mission TrainingMETL 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 masteryExecution 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
9 ReadinessDRRS is MET-based.METLs should help us get to “Metrics that matter!”
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.
11 OperationsMETL 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.
12 FuturesJCIDS and DOD 5000 series call for “capabilities” developmentCapabilities 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.
13 UJTLDRC developed earliest versions of UJTL. Most UJTL guidance still in effect today!Link to Joint Training:
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:MovementLearning about the situationEngagement and employing our capabilitiesSustainCommunicate, direct, coordinate and planProtect
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 Transformation’s 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!
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.

20 Fleet TrainingDRC assisted CFFC in NWTS evolution from JTSDRC assisted in all fleet NMETL development efforts and has provided continuous support to NWTS since inception.DRC (Brown) leads as the Navy’s NMETL advocate!
21 DRRSDefense Readiness Reporting System is MET based.Key to understanding readiness is good expression of mission requirement through the MET construct.DRC’s knowledge in the mission analysis-to-METL process is unmatched.
22 JCIDSCapabilities 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.
23 Mission and Means Framework (MMF) DRC experts understand how to implement the system of systems described by the MMF.
