Guide to DOD PM Knowledge, Skills, and Practices

“Every acquisition professional plays a pivotal role in improving acquisition outcomes and program successes. From inception of a program through disposal Big-A players (discussed in A Department of Defense (DOD) Guide to Program Management Business Processes) are vital in every aspect of an acquisition. Key players work together to find efficient and affordable ways to meet the needs of the requiring sponsor. As materiel solutions are developed, acquired and sustained, the Big-A players must strive to reach a common goal to balance requirements, resources and technology to meet the sponsor’s needs. Words and phrases like flexible, agile, risk & opportunity, tailoring, and trade-offs aid key players in finding optimal materiel solutions to meet the warfighters’ needs.”
