Managing Director & Partner, Global Leader, Defense & Security
What must leaders do to tackle their most pressing transnational security and international defense challenges? How can governments drive innovation through international partnerships? At the Munich Security Conference (MSC), experts explore the global defense initiatives that will shape our future.
To make the world a safer place, leaders from government and industry must understand potent forces at work. They must define and advance common security goals, international partnerships, and defense policy to benefit societies around the globe. Cross-border cooperation on matters of defense and security is vital for enabling leaders to advance global defense initiatives.
BCG’s partnership with the Munich Security Conference connects one of the world’s top management consulting firms with the world's best independent forum for high-level defense policy experts and decision makers to exchange insights on transnational security and foreign policy. To support the MSC’s mission, BCG is sharing our insights and expertise, including our latest thought leadership on four pressing international defense and transnational security topics.
In our role as partner, we are drawing on our deep experience serving defense and security agencies, leveraging our capabilities in artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and digital risk, space, defense innovation, and climate change and sustainability, among other global defense initiatives. We are helping to shape the MSC agendas and breakout sessions and developing discussion groups to focus on today’s most pressing security and defense policy challenges.
As today's economic and security risks become more complex, interconnected, and disruptive, governments need to learn from the private sector and turn risk-management into a competitive advantage.
Armed forces can only recruit and retain the best people if they modernize their cultures—which may require overturning long-standing traditions and norms.
With the right approach to change, defense organizations can become more nimble and better equipped to respond to new threats.
Rather than continue with slow development cycles and radical innovation, the industry must flip the script and focus on getting incremental improvements into the market quickly.
