New Book Warns of Consequences and Offers Solutions As Millennial Workers Enter Defense Industry
PAWTUCKET, R.I.: The millennial generation is coming into its prime and stands ready to take the reins of America's defences. That's right – the same generation known for job-hopping every two years, celebrating participation trophies, and exhibiting a general lack of focus is now being asked to design and develop highly-secretive billion-dollar devices that take years to build without mentioning a word about it anywhere on social media. So, the question everyone might be asking is… are we doomed? Can millennials be entrusted with this responsibility, or will they kill the defence industry per the popular meme?
The Defense Millendustry takes a carefully researched and thoughtful look into where the defence industry is right now and where it's heading. It offers not only suggestions on how to survive the coming millennial and Gen Z workforce onslaught, but it explains how letting a new generation take leadership of this critical industry, and developing a freedom engineering approach, might not be our only chance, but in the end, could save us all.
