Abstract A rapidly changing and very competitive global environment has triggered intensive interest in the processes and management of innovation. This is also true for the defense sector, which is a rather special business environment. This paper deals with the practical application of Drucker's now classical approach to innovation, using the example of an Israeli defense organization experiencing a deep structural change. Sources of systems innovation opportunities that led in the past to successful operational capabilities are presented. It is argued that in the future more systematic management of innovation will be required in order to keep nurturing innovation. The proposed strategy is to pay careful attention to all possible sources of innovation opportunity.
