Abstract:

The contract has finally been awarded. Now what Industry and Department of Defense program managers are committed to achieving success in the program they manage. They both have the responsibility and the authority to execute managerial and technical actions that could lead to success. If they are smart, they know that one of their upfront managerial tools should be a joint DoDindustry New Program Startup Workshop NPSW, and it should be on the near-term agendas of both government and industry PMs. Thats because a properly planned and executed workshop is a positive element for use in the early stages of any program phase. Improving DoDindustry joint integrated product team IPT product alignment is key to a successful program, and thats what the workshop offers.
