Abstract : This Guide addresses Acquisition Program Transition Workshops (APTWs), an element of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (AT&L) Program Manager Assistance Capability. This book is the first of a series of guides that together will describe the entire Program Manager Assistance Capability. The Guide presents observations and experience to assist government and industry PMs and workshop facilitators in planning and conducting of such workshops. This document is based on the lessons learned from the application of APTWs processes in support of the management activities of DoD acquisition programs starting at a post-Milestone (M/S) A, B or C contract award or a special event such as a Nunn-McCurdy restart (Section 2433a, Title 10 USC) for a MDAP having critical cost growth where USD(AT&L) elects not to terminate. Each consulting effort is tailored to the needs of both the government and industry program managers. This book is one of many technical management educational guides written from a Department of Defense perspective; i.e., non-Service specific. These guidebooks are written for current and potential acquisition management personnel who are familiar with basic terms and definitions employed in program offices. The guidebooks are designed to assist government and industry personnel in executing their management responsibilities relative to the acquisition and support of defense systems.
