Abstract The Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD(AT&L)), is committed to improving the performance of the Departments acquisition program managers (PMs). To assist this effort, he requested that the Defense Business Board (DBB) identify best business practices that could improve the intake and development of uniformed program managers. The USD(AT&L) tasked the Board to identify the structure, selection, leadership development, and the assignment paths for military leadership in acquisition, technology and logistics. The recommendations of the Task Group would focus on whether the Department could effectively employ techniques used by program managers in the private sector.
