The F-35 was designed to transfer money from the US (and foreign) governments to Lockheed Martin and it is doing that very well.
The secondary task - being a viable military aircraft - is rather harder especially as it is crippled by stealth technology which several Russian radar systems can circumvent. That's not going to stop the really important payment of bonuses to the LM execs. Tough on the aircrew and those they support.
Re: Hot desking
Management will take credit for the cash savings implied in hot desking but the less-easily measured costs are hand-waved away. In normal offices there can be a great deal of informal information exchange (whether about shared clients or simply how to get a task done) that just vanishes in hot-desking. Plus human connections - whether you like your immediate colleagues or not.
In the early '80s I trained to join a TA observer regiment that had an unspoken rule: don't bother reporting anything smaller than a division in wartime. The Yeoman of Signals explained that we were free to classify our encrypted signals (still using paper one-time pads) as we saw fit (up to Flash - Top Secret): there were special handling procedures for this sort of message. But, he explained, "if you abuse the system you can expect to be bollocked in person by a general".
