With the Allied blockade increasingly taking a toll on the German war effort, the Kaiserliche Marine began devising plans to bring the Royal Navy to battle. Outnumbered in battleships and battle cruisers, the commander of the High Seas Fleet, Vice Admiral Reinhard Scheer, hoped to lure part of the British fleet to its doom with the goal of evening the numbers for a larger engagement at a later date.
To accomplish this, Scheer intended to have Vice Admiral Franz Hipper's scouting force of battle cruisers raid the English coast to draw out Vice Admiral Sir David Beatty's Battle cruiser Fleet. The result led to the High Seas Fleet effectively remaining in port for the remainder of the war as the Kaiserliche Marine turned its focus to submarine warfare.
Both Jellicoe and Beatty were criticized for their performance at Jutland, the battle did lead to several changes in the Royal Navy. Changes were made to ensure a higher degree of safety, improvements to gunnery practices, signaling, and Fleet Standing Orders.
