Thoughts on Innovation

Senior Leader Perspectives

When it comes to innovation, we need to think big, start small, and scale fast.

-- Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein

The world is changing at a pace and scale – and our adversaries are competing in ways – that we haven’t seen before. We have to change. We need Airmen to help move our Air Force forward, because the status quo just doesn’t suffice in today’s world.

--Air Force Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Stephen W. Wilson

How can we do less, do it better, do it faster, and be more efficient, be more lethal, and, ultimately, create a more ready and lethal joint fighting force? The answer is innovation.

 --Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright

What are your thoughts?

Do you have a unique perspective on innovation that you are willing to share?

We are seeking Airmen and Civilian Airmen from across the command to tell us how they define innovation and what they are doing each day to be faster, smarter and better in their execution of the AFMC mission.
