Delivering a Dose of Punk Innovation to Any Problem

Punk and innovation – a match made in the mosh pit? Dan Ward, a retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and author of the recently released Punk: Prompts and Provocations for Authentic Innovations discusses the book and why a little bit of punk may be just the unexpected angle your problem needs. In Ward’s extensive career as a program manager and innovator, he’s seen the benefit of looking at complex problems from different viewpoints. Whether you’re a fan of punk music or not, the book is worth checking out. From how to channel anger, to why fresh perspectives are often the needed ones, how to make some noise, and use your authentic voice, Punk is a great addition to the innovator’s toolkit.

And in the second half of the program, ClearanceJobs’ Lindy Kyzer and legal correspondent Sean Bigley discuss unconventional avenues to help prove your reliability and trustworthiness to the federal government – like burial plots.
