From the report: “When I served as Deputy Chief Management Officer of the Department of Defense in 2015 and 2016, I had a monthly breakfast with the senior executives who worked for me. At one of those breakfasts, one division director who worked for me complained that her workforce was fixed in its ways and found it difficult to adapt to new technologies and innovative business practices. I asked a second director whether she had the same problem. No, she said. Her workforce was young and engaged, and brought new technologies and new approaches to their work without even being asked.”
