Abstract:

This paper researches a concept which may be employed in the development of the future military program manager as related to each Services industry training program. The paper addresses how industry is equipped to provide meaningful training and presents the views of DoD and the Services on its application program management. Much of the information in this paper was accumulated as the result of the authors assignment to industry during which time he observed the industrial organization and worked with industry project managers. He concludes that, although management, training programs and on-the-job training within the Services seemingly provide the necessary ingredients for successful program management training within the industrial environment provides insights to program management unobtainable in any other way. He contends that training with industry must be included in the career development of future program managers in order that they may meet the increasing demands for program visibility and balance.
