Abstract:

ISSUE An endemic culture of consensus pervades the Department of Defense, hindering innovation and stifling creativity rather than facilitating a crucible of ideas. IMPORTANCE In the current fiscally constrained environment, the next SECDEF will be required to make tough strategic decisions. A culture of creative tension can increase innovative risk-taking and out-of-the-box ideas. The culture of compromise and the involvement of too many, results in little accountability or motivation for individuals to excel and few if any sanctions against bad decisions.
