Abstract:

The development of program managers has been a topic of continuing interest within the Air Force and the Department of Defense. This report reviews previous studies and comments by high level officials to determine those experience, education, and training factors considered to be most relevant to program managers. To determine the extent to which these factors were contained in the backgrounds of officers currently managing Air Force programs, the development histories of 783 were examined. In general, these officers were found to have been well prepared through appropriate experience and education. However, the experience level of some managers of smaller programs was found to be low. Few of the officers examined had completed relevant training courses. Author
