Congratulations to my NCOIC colleague and dear friend Melvin Greer on his impressive WashingtonExec interview.

A senior fellow and chief strategist at Lockheed Martin, Mel has more than 29 years’ experience in systems and software engineering and is a recognized expert in Service Oriented Architecture, Cloud Computing and Predictive Analytics. His research fields include Nanotechnology, Synthetic Biology and Gamification. His new book, “21st Century Leadership: Harnessing Innovation, Accelerating Business Success”  is book centered on leadership and its relationship to business. Mel also leads The Greer Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank. The institute is organized for educational research and scientific application of Greer’s theories on leadership and innovation and addresses society’s related problems.

In the interview, Mel explains the tight linkage between innovative leaders and the development of a strong workforce. He also addresses how future leaders are developed via a robust science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and arts (STEAM) pipeline. In the book, he drills down to illuminate what makes leaders so good at innovation and talent, and describes how to move an innovation strategy from “chasing shiny objects” to a powerful, sustainable cultural change and create a magnet for great talent.
