PA Consulting Group - Innovation as Unusual Report - Cover

How defence organisations can stop their best ideas from falling through the cracks

Our new innovation survey has found 80% of senior executives in the defence sector believe incremental innovation is more valuable to them than disruptive breakthrough innovation.

In the report you will find that private defence companies, while far more likely to back high-risk initiatives, admit they focus more on incremental improvements than on developing innovative new products and business models.

In our experience, a siloed approach to innovation is unlikely to succeed. To deliver transformational results, innovation has to move beyond the R&D department and become firmly embedded in the culture of the organisation.

To achieve this, our research suggests seven recommendations that senior executives should consider to convert innovation investment into profitable return.   

The report also covers: 

  • Cross-sector learnings for addressing the innovation drain
  • Best practice examples from 24 interviews with innovation leaders
  • Analysis by sector and key findings
  • Analysis by country and key findings.
