Abstract : Training for program management personnel in the Air Force is a key instrument in preparing members to manage major acquisitions. This thesis examines the forms of training available for personnel in program management both in and out of the Air Force. The major portion of the report examines what training is being utilized, the adequacy of this training, and the improvements that should be made to this training. The information for that part of the report was gathered through interviews with System Program Directors in the Aeronautical Systems Division and the Armament Division. Professional management views of the System Program Directors were also obtained relative to their perceptions of an ideal training program for program management personnel. Presentation of the analysis of interview data provides a one-time academic review and summary report for exchange of ideas concerning training for program management personnel. (Author)
