"To try to achieve the seemingly contradictory goal of making a very large organization agile by using parts of that same organization, in January, I established the Navy’s Task Force Innovation: a group from across the department comprising thinkers, experts, and warfighters with diverse backgrounds and from every level. We have a long tradition of creativity, and we have exceptionally talented people in the Navy and Marine Corps. I’ve charged this Task Force with harnessing that creative energy of our Sailors and Marines and infusing the ideas that come forward into our operations." http://www.navy.mil/navydata/people/secnav/Mabus/Speech/SAS_Final%20AS%20PREPARED%20(2).pdf I like some of the work they are doing, the intent is good but would it work with the RN???? Should we start at unit level? Would engaging the sailors and marines at sea make a difference? Do we need to teach them critical thinking so that it becomes not a drip session but a somewhere that new ideas are worked on?
