The entire defense value chain stands on the precipice of significant change triggered by severe budget pressures. During the past 10 years the defense budget has experienced unprecedented growth. Now that trajectory has turned, and DoD stands at a crossroads in which the alternative paths to meeting its budget challenges imply very different consequences—namely, reduce scope, or maintain scope and dramatically change the way business is done. Successes in the commercial sector offer government and the defense industry a way forward, but they also beg a key question: Can defense value chains respond similarly? A.T. Kearney interviewed participants across the entire spectrum of the defense value chain from Tier 3’s to Primes and from government Program Managers to Pentagon policy makers to understand their perspectives on impediments and potential actions on improving defense affordability. This webinar will cover their findings.
