Moores has replaced Duncan Fletcher who resigned after the team's failure to make the semi-finals in the Caribbean and he is convinced that he can turn around the team's fortunes.
"There will be the chance to speak to some of the players and see what lessons have been learnt over the winter that we can take forward, hopefully to a very successful period of England cricket," said Moores.
"We have shown over the last two years, with winning the Ashes here in 2005, that there are some great players and they can play some good cricket.
"The key will be to try and get that cricket played again by the England team and let's see where that takes us."
England suffered a 5-0 Ashes drubbing in Australia in the winter and despite beating the hosts to the Commonwealth Bank series one-day title, they could only finish in fifth place in the World Cup Super Eights table ahead of West Indies, Bangladesh and Ireland.
Their next mission is to face the West Indies on home soil in a Test series getting underway in May.
"I'm very positive because we've got these good players. It's been a tough winter but out of tough times you learn a lot," said Moores.
"They've been very successful up until the last 12 months. The key for me is that we learn from those things that have happened and we actually move forward and learn from those lessons."
Vaughan's position as one-day captain has been heavily criticised after England's performance in the Carribean but Moores is focussed on fostering a strong bond with the Yorkshireman.
"Michael is going to be captain for the first Test so it is important to speak to him. His reputation as a captain goes without saying.
"He will have some fairly interesting views on what has happened this winter so it will be interesting to talk to him on the way forward."
"The relationship with captain is one of the key relationships. There are lots of things that make teams click but the coach-captain relationship is one of the crucial relationships."
"Is it viable to have separate one-day and Test captains? I am going to see what Michael's view is. In an ideal world it is nice to have one captain but we will see where we go to."
