Stifled Innovation? Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Today

Authored by Dr. Leonard Wong.

April 2002

Brief Synopsis

The author examines the current company commander experience and concludes that the Army values innovation in its rhetoric, but the reality is that junior officers are seldom given opportunities to be innovative in planning training; to make decisions; or to fail, learn, and try again.

Consequently, the author asks for senior leaders not to do more, but to do less and thus give subordinates more freedom to innovate.
