In the U.S. Navy, the Operations Officer occupies an incredibly challenging and rewarding position that requires dynamic leadership and management skills. Operations Officer’s Guide is a practical guide to learning this vital role aboard a U.S. Navy warship. This book is designed as an introduction for officers detailed to the operations officer billet, whether assigned to patrol coastal ships or to major commands. This book is primarily a practical guide to leading and managing the Operations Department aboard a U.S. Navy warship. It is written for the Operations Officer who leads the department, but is a useful tool for anyone interested in how the Fleet works. To succeed in today’s Navy, the Operations Officer must understand the global environment where our Navy operates as well as the organizational context of how Navy missions are defined and assigned. It is a short discount textbook.
