Navy Enlisted Supply Chain (NESC) organizations are highly interdependent in the planning and execution processes that fuel Navy personnel end strength with new accessions. Orchestrating complex NESC outcomes across 36 months of planning for future requirements while simultaneously conducting current-day supply chain execution activities requires persistent and collaborative engagement among all stakeholders. Effective and efficient collaboration among NESC organizations is essential to optimizing the placement of the right sailor in the right job at the right time. This thesis identifies the relationships and processes essential to promoting effective and efficient collaboration and mission accomplishment within the NESC. Additionally, this thesis adapts the language of the Inter-Organizational Collaborative Capacity (ICC) Assessment instrument, tailoring it to NESC Quarterly Demand Planning (QDP) forum stakeholders. This thesis sets the foundation for future collaborative capacity research of the NESC. Feedback from the NESC QDP forum ICC assessment in future studies will produce a collaborative capacity road map, establishing the baseline necessary for observing, measuring, and ultimately improving the productivity and efficacy of collaboration among NESC organizations.
