Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD can foster dynamic and innovative solutions for tomorrow s warfighter by designing acquisition portfolios that deliver an integrated suite of capabilities. Program executive officers PEOs today often focus on executing a dozen similar, but independent, programs. In contrast, large commercial businesses manage integrated product lines for items ranging from automobiles and electronics to software and health services. The DoD could leverage this model as a basis for constructing portfolios of similar programs that deliver enhanced capabilities in shorter timeframes.
