Lisa Porter joins me with Eric Lofgren from AcquisitionTalk as cohost to reflect on how R&D works and doesn't work `in the Pentagon.
Lisa served as was deputy director of Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering in the DoD, founding director of IARPA, and executive vice president of In-Q-Tel. We touch on:
How the error correction of free markets is absent in DoD
A round of overrated/underrated on critical S&T areas
How successful government organizations empower their staff
Why the US lost its dominance in space launch
