Transparency is central to the success of AIR Transformation, our comprehensive approach to increasing efficiency and effectiveness. All stakeholders, both internal and external, need to know what AIR is doing and why.
In order to provide a holistic view and achieve full realization of AIR Transformation, AIR has developed a three-tiered strategic framework (see figure 1 below).
I. Blueprint: Strategic Vision
In March 2017, AIR published the Blueprint for AIR Transformation. This living document identifies the case for change, captures the strengths of earlier efforts, and builds on major initiatives underway. The Blueprint was developed in a collaborative manner and underwent review by various internal and external stakeholders.
II. Comprehensive Strategic Plan
In August 2018, AIR published the Comprehensive Strategic Plan (CSP). The CSP translates the Blueprint into a broad set of 10 initiatives and accompanying actions that, when fully implemented, will transform the Aircraft Certification Safety System. These initiatives touch every aspect of the System, from safety regulations and policies to how AIR and Industry must engage to achieve mutual objectives.
III. Integrated Implementation Plan
In support of the CSP, the AIR workforce, Industry, international partners, and other FAA stakeholders will develop short-term implementation plans to drive the system towards the future vision. The resulting plans will be compiled into an Integrated Implementation Plan (IIP) to identify conflicts, cross-functional activities, and areas for cooperation.
As AIR changes and learns over time, the pieces of AIR's three-tiered strategic framework will evolve. In the spirit of learning and collaboration, questions and comments are encouraged.
