Abstract:

Self-actualization is a process whereby an individual begins to discover his potential as a complete human being and then directs his efforts toward fulfillment of that potential. The self-actualizing person is a superior human being in the sense of being more fully creative, responsible, trusting, loving, etc. He is the kind of person that a program manager must be in the rapidly changing and challenging defense systems acquisition environment. The business environment today provides little support for the growth of such people. However, through enrichment of mans other dominant institution, marriage, a man can grow toward self-actualization and become in this way, not only a more complete program manager, but husband and parent also, an important consideration in the turbulent society of today.
