The volatility and complexity of the defence environment remains a constant challenge for government and industry alike. After over 10 years of operations in Afghanistan, the UK’s armed forces is withdrawing, and subsequently their profile is reducing. These changes are occurring while the UK government is preparing for another strategic defence security review and a general election. 

Different nations are experiencing a range of themes, from tackling cyber security to ensuring closer international collaboration, and from implementing acquisition reform to establishing a long-term industrial strategy for defence. Many countries are facing significant defence transformation as their focus also shifts to force reductions.

We work closely with the armed forces, the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), European defence ministries and the US Department of Defense (DoD), bringing together the right expertise and experience to challenge conventional thinking and deliver exceptional results.

  • Innovate or suffocate: UK defence and its response to a disruptive worldFor UK defence to realise the capabilities and operational advantage it needs in this dynamic environment, it needs to change how it invests in and promotes innovation. This means targeting investment on where government can make the greatest impact and linking across military, civilian and academic sectors to drive and exploit innovations. It also means changing how Defence asks for what it needs and plans for evolving rather than stable requirements.
  • Driving change from within UK defenceThere are a number of myths that hold people back and, while there may be elements of truth underpinning these myths, accepting them in full constrains the thinking and confidence across Defence. The MOD must confront these myths to provide the driving force and momentum to exploit new freedoms and make the changes required.
  • Innovation event 2014 - mind versus machineMore than 100 guests attended PA's tenth annual innovation event, held at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
