Summary
"Rather surprisingly, many of the most important new military systems of the past decade have been produced by small firms that secured competitive government con tracts. In this insightful book, defense-industry consultant James Hasik argues that such companies have a number of advantages relative to their bigger competitors, including an entrepreneurial spirit and fewer bureaucratic obstacles, and thus can both be more responsive to changes in the environment and more strategic in their planning."--BOOK JACKET
