Rapid-fire response

"There is now a move away from long-term defence procurement projects, that can take years, towards more rapid projects where the defining principle is time."

Jonathan Evans, defence and security expert at PA Consulting Group, is quoted in The Daily Telegraph’s Defence supplement.

The article looks at how today’s military needs to be faster and more economical than ever, and how the defence industry is responding with successful new ways of operating.

Jonathan says: "There is now a move away from long-term defence procurement projects, that can take years, towards more rapid projects where the defining principle is time." Jonathan goes on to comment: "Whatever the forthcoming Strategic Defence and Security Review brings, the defence sector is likely to be working at an increased tempo in the future, not least because speedier delivery will force through efficiencies to bring down costs."

The article concludes with Jonathan’s comments on the future shape of the defence industry: "In future, we can expect a more mobile workforce and greater demand for experience and skills in areas such as complex programme management, systems integration and financial management. As the MoD slims down, there will be an increased transfer of roles to defence companies, creating more flexibility for movement between the public and private sectors.
