UKC Managment Team

06 Sep 2011 - UKC Strategy



UKC has a vision but, more importantly, it has a strategy that will help us achieve that vision. The vision is simple:



"To create a fun community and structure to accommodate all themes, aspirations and objectives for all players whilst establishing one of EVE's ultimate corporations."
 

How are we going to achieve this? 

Good management, organisation, structure and communications. UKC has adopted a hierarchical structure based on RL business and corporation development. 


The building blocks include:


  • Fluid management structure and leadership
  • A corporate charter
  • A well laid-out strategy
  • Organisation
  • Excellent communication mechanisms 
  • and - above all - a unified passion for the corporation. 




Whether you prefer Industry or PVP UKC has created an environment and framework for you to achieve your goals and enjoy the full spectrum of EVE gameplay. 


So what is the UKC trying to achieve?

Ultimately, UKC wants to be one of the best all round member corporations in EVE. UKC understands that many of its members will want more responsibility, more game-play and want more access to the EVE features. Recognising this, UKC infrastructure is fluid and encourages members to take initiatives, develop roles and take leadership responsibilities. Different 'departments' specialising in various aspects of corporate operation and the game allow UKC to be diverse and offer a variety of gameplay to all its members.

2005 was very successfull for the UKC, let us make 2006 even more so.


OBJECTIVES from 2005


Stage One
Establish a core 'trusted' and active management team capable of taking the UKC along the journey. This is the team that will drive home the corporation strategy, culture and objectives in line with the CEO and be fully committed to the corporation cause. This team will form the rank 1, 2 and 3 management backbone and will be empowered to manage the UKC day-to-day issues, membership and core activities.

COMPLETED
Stage Two
Establish profitable income streams to ensure that the corporation receives continuous funding and resources whilst developing a fluid set of divisions within the parent corporation. The divisions will specialise in different aspects of EVE game-play and be managed by rank 3 leaders. Ensure that the day-to-day running of the corporation is resilient and seamless and that the UKC culture is indoctrinated in to all new recruits. Learn to live and operate in a low security region without disruption and ensure the safety and protection of all UKC members. Establish an academy for new recruits with appropriate training and investment and embark on forming partnerships and trusted NAP's with similar minded corporations and/or alliances.
COMPLETED
Stage Three
Establish a claim to a small piece of space either with or without an alliance and become a major influence in the EVE universe. Establish the UKC as a respected corporation/alliance with intelligence, wealth and strength in depth.

Whilst it is easy to dismiss the UKC vision as 'over ambitious' or unimaginative, the UKC believe that a corporation needs objectives and a strategy to achieve it - and we intend to see it through.
