Welcome To NavalX
NavalX serves as the Department of Navy (DON) workforce "super-connector," focused on scaling non-traditional agility methods across the DON workforce. Our Naval culture of decentralized autonomy has been described as an innovation landscape marked by isolated and short-lived bursts of success.
The approach is to connect to these isolated pockets of excellence to capture and scale the methodologies being employed, increasing awareness of cross-Department of Defense (DoD) and external successes, lessons learned, and subject matter experts.
NavalX was formally announced in February 2019, as a direct-report initiative under the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition (ASN RDA).
