DLS Mission, Vision & Values
The world is rapidly changing all around us. In order to thrive as a business over the next ten years and beyond, we must be able to understand the trends and forces that will shape our business; visualize the actions that must be taken to meet the trends and forces; to be able to describe these trends and forces in a manner that promotes a collaborative effort among strategic partners and all employees at DLS and swiftly direct the collaborative efforts in order to prepare for whats to come. We must get ready for tomorrow today. That's what our 2022 Vision is all about. It creates a long-term goal for our business and provides DLS with a "Roadmap" for winning collaboratively with our strategic partners.
Our Roadmap starts with our mission, which is enduring. It declares our purpose as a company and serves as the standard against which we weigh our actions and decisions.
• To provide all U.S. branches of the DoD with geographically correct environmental training...
• To provide Law Enforcement Agencies with a cost effective and realistic replication training ...
• To create value and make a difference to all who honor us through their sacrifices on a daily basis
Our vision serves as the foundation for our Roadmap for the future and guides every aspect of our business by describing what we need to accomplish in order to continue providing sustainable, quality products and growth.
