This study investigated the identification, selection, and training process for Headquarters Air Force Logistics Command HQ AFLC acquisition program managers. The acquisition program managers of interest were located in HQ AFLCs Logistics Management Systems Center LMSC. A literature search revealed these program managers are subject to several program management philosophies and policies. LMSC program managers were surveyed concerning their formal education, training, and job experience, and were asked about the perceived importance of expertise in certain program management functional areas. LMSC program managers were also asked about the current LMSC program manager identification and selection process. Several senior AFLC leaders were then interviewed and asked about the need requirements for these program managers and the program manager identification and selection process. The present process appears to be working well, but there is a need to provide formal training prior to program managers assuming their program management responsibilities.
