Managing an organization as large and complex as the FBI requires a definitive idea of where we are now and where we hope to be in five years, 10 years, and 20 years. That’s where our strategy comes in. The FBI strategy enables Bureau leaders and managers to define and pursue objectives crucial to mission success, prioritize resources to achieve those objectives, track progress along the way, address gaps when identified, and, most importantly, deliver consistent results.
The FBI strategy is periodically reviewed and adapted to align with the changing threat landscape and organizational climate.
Our core values—respect, integrity, accountability, leadership, diversity, compassion, fairness, and rigorous obedience to the Constitution—are the foundation of our organization and should be incorporated into everything we do.
Our enterprise objectives are where we need to focus over the next three to five years to move the FBI forward. Our enterprise objectives each align to one of the guiding principles.
Our four guiding principles—people, partnerships, process, and innovation—help us organize the changes needed to accomplish our vision.
As we build momentum around our enterprise objectives, we will better accomplish our mission and begin to achieve our vision. Our vision is where we want to be: Ahead of the Threat.
We work around the globe, including:
