Key Quotes

“In the government for whatever reason, that’s been difficult for us to transform into a continuous delivery where we can turnaround capability fast at a high quality for the fleet. So that’s, that’s our goal. Our vision.”

“You’ll also see on this slide that we’re still dealing with spreadsheets, we’re still dealing with with PowerPoint to manage a lot of these things…You’ll see that is still a very typical serial process for baseline development. And I’m going to kind of go over how we’re changing some of those things to get after it and to get more speed and to evolve our abilities.”

“We’re trying to get an environment that we can get anybody…the startups, anybody. I know a lot of people are moving from Silicon Valley to the Austin area. So I know there’s a lot of people that can provide us capability in that area and others as well.”
