Abstract : This Handbook is an introduction to joint program management for current and future joint program personnel. As a complement to the more general Introduction to Defense Acquisition Management, 3d edition, (DSMC Press, June 1996), this Handbook incorporates the perspectives of former joint program managers (PMs) gleaned from a Defense Systems Management College (DSMC)-sponsored interview program. This overview does not detail descriptions of how each component manages those joint programs for which it is the lead component. Joint programs are managed on a day-to-day basis in accordance with the lead components procedures; details are left to the component. This Handbook provides additional guidance on policies and procedures that help assure a successful joint program.
