“You look at the direction the direction the world is going, the threats that we face, and innovation is going to be its own competitive domain — almost a battlefield. We’ve got to win the innovation battle…It’s not enough to develop and procure systems anymore. We’ve got to get in the business of of buying ideas and generating ideas.”
