This thesis explores the Department of the Navy’s innovation initiatives to determine how to leverage social networks to enhance innovation inside the Navy. Using the results of a social network analysis that mapped and measured the informal Navy Innovation Network, and examining how other military branches and industry pursue innovation, this qualitative research seeks to identify gaps and redundancies in the current Navy Innovation Network. Furthermore, recommendations are proposed that provide a more effective and structured approach to capturing innovative ideas from Sailors and Marines to improve Department of Navy operations and policies. .
