P4 is a set of priorities developed by the Air Force Sustainment Center’s commander and executive director that describes the AFSC commitment to people and processes.

Created in alignment with the Art of the Possible leadership model, one of the goals of P4 is to help ensure an effective supplier and business industry alignment within the AFSC while aiming to become faster and more agile with continued support of the DoD priorities.

“There are four really distinct priorities that Mr. D’Angelo and I came up with that are cross-cutting and fit nicely with just about everything that we base, as a center, into this priority scheme,” Lt. Gen. Stacey Hawkins, AFSC commander said, in a Center-wide townhall video.

The P4 priorities lists and describes the AFSC’s call to action for meeting the needs of AFSC stakeholders while fulfilling the DoD mission at the Center level.

Produce to Promise: It is our responsibility to our customers, partners, and Program Executive Offices to produce what we have promised on time and on cost. When our warfighters need a requirement fulfilled, we consider that a promise made, and we will produce to it.

People Make it Happen: People are at the forefront of everything we do. We must recruit, retain and develop our people to build the next generation of both military and civilian Airmen.

Process is How We Do It: Art of the Possible is not a fad. It has been at the center of our efforts for a decade, and it is how we maintain integrity within our processes. The leadership model is foundational to our mission culture.

Prepare for Competition and Future Warfighting: We preserve readiness by anticipating and adapting to what strategic competition requires.

“People, at the heart of everything we do, and we spend a lot of time talking about how we can take care of our people,” Hawkins said.

From their physical selves to their professional development; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, as well, because if we don’t address those needs then we won’t have the best person to serve the needs of our mission, he added.
