One of the most inspiring terms of the English language is Innovation – to create a new product, technology, or strategy that results in radical change. Large bureaucracies, like those in the Pentagon crush innovation opportunities daily, leaving outdated programs, policies, and strategies to languish far beyond their useful lifespan.

We must create fertile ground for innovation to prosper once again, from DARPA and the labs developing breathtaking new technologies to our daily military and business operations finding efficient and more effective methods to develop and execute our national defense strategy. We must teach everyone from the most senior Pentagon executives to the recruits entering basic training how to innovate, why adopting an innovation culture is essential to our line of work, and give them the tools to succeed at every level of an organization.

As our future requires a strong partnership with industry we must find strategies to enable open innovation to advance our technologies and strategies.  The DoD should follow the President’s lead in publishing a Strategy for American Innovation to harness the ingenuity of the American people.

“Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time.” – Bill Gates
