The U.S. Navy is in the process of revolutionary change. Organizationally imposed limitations that have prevented it from fully exploiting the potential of its enlisted sailors, soon will be a historical footnote in the Navy's journey toward becoming a learning organization. In 2000, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark chartered a team, led by retired Vice Admiral Lee Gunn, to review the methods the Navy uses to train its people. In addition, they were encouraged to go to the industry and seek best practices and technologies, then in use to train, develop and retain its workforce. The most revolutionary recommendation was to shift the Navy's training philosophy to one that holds the sailor, not equipment, as the primary customer.
