*UKHotViewsExtra* Leidos: Establishing an innovation mindset

It’sLeidos logo been around 11 months since Simon Fovargue took the helm at Leidos UK – see DXC’s Fovargue to lead Leidos UK. Coming from HPE and, subsequently, DXC, where he spent 13 years after an early career as a British Army Officer, he has faced a different culture and way of working in his new role.

His time, so far, as UK CE, has confirmed the views of Leidos he formed while qualifying the role: “more entrepreneurial, more collaborative, more agile, more inclusive”. All characteristics that Simon says clients see too. That means, he says, that the company is good at execution and good at operations. Where he believes they need to get better, having spoken to clients, is in being more innovative.

In this latest UKHotViewsExtra, we look at Leidos’ recent performance and the actions he has taken to establish an innovation and growth mindset within the company.
