__ Corporation (__) is a Systems Engineering-focused consultancy with a diverse background in supplying highly experienced analysts and engineers to solve complex design and support problems. __ has a heritage of providing innovative ideas to solve common engineering and logistics issues and facilitating the ―agents of change within even the most bureaucratic of organizations. Beyond changing the status quo of common engineering and logistics processes, __ has been adept at resolving the organizational conflicts that come with such transformational changes. Iterative or transitional changes in the engineering process rarely bring about transformational new designs.

Thinking “outside of the box” is required to achieve design and support solutions that are going to be competitive and meet the needs of the new highly dynamic application of systems and technologies in a global environment. As Albert Einstein said: “You can’t solve current problems with current thinking. Current problems are the result of current thinking.”

Current thinking is a management point-of-view that destroys innovation and shelters the bureaucracy so that it can continue to exist in its status quo form. However, this is an age of disruptive technologies and asymmetrical threats. Organizations can no longer find success relying on achieving the status quo, but rather must achieve innovation in design and service as the norm. Jim Collins wrote in his book, “Good to Great”: “Good is the enemy of great.”

Is your competition waiting for your next predictable iteration? Perhaps they are plotting a new disruptive design solution that will make what you do obsolete, quickly. Much of the current innovation was brought about by applying existing technology and knowledge from a unique point of view. They were not the result of a great leap in technology. These new innovations were built on the shoulders of existing knowledge and technology that was applied in an innovative way.
