Organisational and Market Fitness: delivering productivity gains
In the last two decades, the overall productivity gains propelled by technology and innovation, have not been as well articulated in public services - particularly in defence and security. Here, the economics once dubbed Keynesian Militarism continues to prevail.
Whilst this does not necessarily block the uptake of innovation and growth, it does not match that achieved in other sectors. There is, therefore, scope to consider how the delivery of productivity gains could change across defence, security and resilience.
This RIC will focus on gains that embrace behavioural and evolutionary economics and a systems engineering based approach to the acquisition of capabilities.
