Allied Command Transformation (ACT)

Norfolk, VA

Allied Command Transformation’s mission is to contribute to preserving the peace, security and territorial integrity of Alliance member states by leading the transformation of military structures, forces, capabilities and doctrines. The mission must enable NATO to meet its level of ambition and core missions.

From its inception in 2003, Allied Command Transformation demonstrated the importance placed by NATO nations on the roles of transformation and development as continuous and essential drivers for change – drivers of change that will ensure the relevance of the alliance in a rapidly evolving and complex global security environment.

Allied Command Transformation is organized around four principal functions:

  • Strategic thinking;
  • Development of capabilities;
  • Education, training and exercises; and,
  • Co-operation and engagement.

These functions are reflected in the composition of Allied Command Transformation which has its Headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia and three subordinate entities in Norway (Joint Warfare Centre), in Poland (Joint Force Training Centre) and in Portugal (Joint Analysis & Lessons Learned Centre).
