The Navy's future success relies on its ability to improve its current level of readiness in an environment of limited budgets. The enterprise concept has been the Navy's tool to meet this fiscal challenge. Through better resource allocation, Navy Enterprise seeks to maximize return on investment (ROI). Previous projects have analyzed the results from Sea Enterprise through 2005 and Naval Aviation Enterprise through 2007. Addressing enterprise management in the surface warfare community expands this body of knowledge. This project focuses on enterprise practices in the surface navy. It analyzes how the Surface Warfare Enterprise (SWE) is organized, governed, led and attempted to determine if changes in resource allocation can be attributed to these practices. The results of this project reveal that SWE's application of enterprise management practices through organization, governance, and leadership is largely consistent with corporate enterprise models and recommendations, but also identifies some areas of inconsistency and potential challenges unique to SWE that must be managed carefully. The project identifies some changes in resource allocation that can be attributed to SWE, but is largely inconclusive. Further research into this area is recommended and a course of action is provided.
