Abstract : Acquisition managers in the Department of Defense are required to meet certain training, education, and experience requirements to become a program manager. These requirements have undergone significant change in the last few years by direction of Congress and the DOD. This paper compares and evaluates the careers of program managers in the Army, Navy, and Air Force. The study concludes that although the services meet the requirements, the Defense Systems Management College should be emphasized more strongly and experience levels should be above the present minimums.
