Abstract : As an instructor for the Air Force Institute of Technology's Intermediate Project Management class (IPM 301), I sometimes hear students express deep frustration with their seeming inability to make any positive progress on their programs. In a recent presentation, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Dan Ward fielded several questions from junior program managers (PMs) about what they could do to make a difference in their programs. Wards responses echoed good advice I received during my career, which I was inspired to share.
