Abstract:

Negative headlines are rarely balanced with news of successful Army acquisition programs. The Army has hundreds of acquisition programs, many of which are successful. As students at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces ICAF, we conducted a research project to assess successful Army acquisition programs in order to identify characteristics that led to their success. Our findings can be adopted by other program teams, within the current acquisition construct, to improve their likelihood of success.
