Steven Grundman, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, discusses the influence of Andrew Marshall on the defense industry, and how he created an innovation culture at the Pentagon. The passing of Andrew Marshall sent waves through the defense industry. The former head of the Office of Net Assessment had earned the unofficial title “The most influential man you’ve never heard of,” thanks to his dealings with the defense industry and promoting military innovation. Steven Grundman, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, says that Marshall’s influence can be summed up by a 1992 meeting at the Pentagon.   THE COLD WAR IS OVER, AND THE GULF WAR. AND I JUST THINK IT IS STRIKING TO HIS CREDIT ANDY MARSHALL WHO MADE HIS MARK WAS ALREADY CHALLENGING THE MILITARY BY PRESENTING THESE BUSINESSES EXECUTES, EACH OF WHOSE BUSINESSES HAS BEEN THREATENED AND OVERTURNED BY CHANGE; TECHNOLOGY CHANGE, COMPETITIVE CHANGE. IN SOME RESPECT CELEBRATING OR HARVESTING THE LESSONS THAT WE HAD LEARN AND WANT TO TAKE FORWARD, THERE WAS MARSHALL PUTTING A CHALLENGE IN FRONT OF THEM, ONE FROM THE MILITARY PERSPECTIVE WAY BACK THEN WAS FROM LEFT FIELD.
