Live the Company Values
We all have the company values listed on the back of our badges—Quality, Customer Satisfaction, Leadership, Integrity, People, Suppliers. Integrity must characterize everything we do. We want everyone who comes in contact with us to know that we do things the right way at Northrop Grumman. We don't take short cuts.
Focus on Operating Excellence
Northrop Grumman is very well positioned strategically. We must focus on program performance to deliver on the full operating and financial potential of our company.
Act With Speed
Northrop Grumman is a much larger company today than we were. With this increased size comes the challenge of operating in a timely fashion. We must avoid bureaucratic delays. We must be agile enough to act faster than our competitors. This "small company" behavior has characterized Northrop Grumman all along and is one we must continue.
We want good news to travel fast and bad news to travel even faster up the line. We need to be mindful of the importance of honestly communicating problems as well as breakthroughs. The sooner we communicate a problem, the easier it is for us to marshal our company's resources to solve it.
Collaborate Across the Company
Northrop Grumman's power comes from the talented people who make up our company. By cooperating and sharing our knowledge with each other seamlessly across organizations, we can make our company even stronger.
