Federal 100: James Cook

Name: James Cook
Title: Vice President and Director, Center for Enterprise Modernization
Company: The MITRE Corp.

That makes it a perfect home for Cook, who has long seen agency contracts as a means to bring sustained innovation and improved performance rather than as ends unto themselves.
