The principal characteristics desired in Air Force organizations are:
Mission Orientation.
Unambiguous Command.
Decentralization
Agility
Flexibility
Simplicity

achieve the outcome defined in the applicable mission directive.

Organizational structure should provide a clear chain-of-command
running from the President to the most junior airman.

without needing continuous control from above.
Decentralization.
Organizations should be structured so personnel can recognize problems, find solutions,
make decisions, and implement them quickly.
Agility.
Organizations should be capable of adapting rapidly to changing external circumstances.

Organizational structure should be as plain and straightforward as possible because
complexity often inhibits rather than facilitates organizational effectiveness.

structures.
