VISION Roundtable Review: Innovation in the DoD

Posted by Jade Baranski on Aug 6, 2021 7:35:33 AM

On July 22, 2021 the Mobilize team hosted a roundtable discussion with visionary leaders about the state of innovation throughout the Department of Defense. We are happy to report that the DoD is primed for a powerful change in its innovation process and Mobilize VISION is the tool to actualize those possibilities! Countless decks, video calls, and emails cannot guide the innovation process. A tool is needed to facilitate communication, tracking, data collection, and collaboration in a single space. Mobilize VISION is that tool.


Innovators at this roundtable discussion have the vision and clarity to know exactly what they need regarding innovation culture. Attendees said:


“Competition is a valued cornerstone of the American mindset, but to outpace our adversaries, facilitating collaboration is key.” 


“Optimizing the culture of innovation within the DoD at large is paramount to maintaining our status on the global scale.”


However, innovation leadership know that it will take a powerful shift to create that change.

“We have the best problem solvers in the world and they are already working on solving the toughest problems.  But we don’t have a system that allows us to capture data, structure it properly, and enable decision makers to pour fuel on the fire.”


When the question of best practices surrounding innovation came up, attendees were quick to share:

"Saving time by innovating on and automating existing processes allows us to inspire further growth in our armed forces."


"Fail early. Fail fast. Fail cheap. Learn and make it better."


The conversations happening in the Mobilize VISION roundtable discussions are shaping the future of innovation in the DoD. If you want to be part of the development of that future, join us for our Innovation Open Mic on August 25, 2021 at 1:00 PM EST -  save your spot today!
