  1. Jay, you have a very interesting point of view on many topics. Nice blog. Thanks!

  2. Yup, Build a Better Mouse Trap!

    Yes the Defense Industry is static and maintains a status quo. However, change is not always good. I served in the reserves for 22 years and worked in Defense for 29 years. I have an MBA and understand the past and current trends very well. Diversity is not what it is cracked up to be, however static a particular industry may be resistant to change in demographics and change in methodology. Sometimes getting back to basics is needed before you get to the advanced stage of operations. Remember the core mission of your organization served. The military is designed to close and distroy the enemy. How many years did you serve in a uniform? Rules of engagement sometimes cloud what your original mission was. Beware of what you wish for as you might just get it!
