Running head: MODEL CANVAS PART 1 1 Model Canvas Part 1: Pacific Air Forces Bradford K. Cambra American Military University
MODEL CANVAS PART 1 2 Abstract The mission of the United States Air Force (USAF) is to Fly, Fight and Win, which has been the hallmark of their success through countless wars. As a major command (MAJCOM) within the USAF, Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) responsibility spans across 36 nations. PACAF was created on 1 July 1957 and is headquartered at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The command has more than 45,000 military and civilian personnel serving in nine strategic locations, and capable of delivering more than 320 aircraft throughout the pacific. The Commanders vision is to provide combat-ready American Airmen who are the foundation of pacific stability and security. [USA18]. As a career Security Forces (SF) defender with more than 19 years of service, I am entrusted with the unique responsibility of integrated base defense, anti-terrorism and force protection, ensuring the safety and protection of personnel and resources, enabling PACAF mission and Commanders vision.
MODEL CANVAS PART 1 3 As I worked through this week’s assignment and learned to grasp the concepts of creating a model canvas for my organization, I found it extremely difficult to link the United States Air Force to a traditional organization. As a result, it was necessary for me to conduct extensive research and critical thinking during the assignment. Although initially difficult to digest, I began to leverage my experience to scope the bigger picture of the organizational model. What I’ve learned during this assignment is how important the United States Air Force and Pacific Air Forces responsibilities are to its customers, some of the key activities required to conduct its mission, critical resources, channels and cost structures.
