To manage your division effectively and effi-
ciently, you must have a sound division organization.
A sound division organization has a clear organiza-
tional structure and definite policies and procedures.
It also has the necessary controls to ensure that the
division is capable of completing its mission under
all conditions. A functional organization eases the pro-
cess of escalating from peacetime status to wartime
status without major organizational changes.
The standard requirements for organization aboard
each ship type and class are defined by the type com-
mander (TYCOM) or higher authority. These require-
ments are intended to help commanding officers
manage their units in the best possible manner.
