Abstract
In 2008, Congress passed Public Law 110-181, which directed the Secretary of Defense to properly size and train the Department of Defense workforce to do more inherently governmental functions. There was no training path established to support this law. Therefore, the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) established such training for the functional area of Lead System Integrator (LSI). The LSI area of study has been conducted at NPS for years through research and cohort classwork. This thesis is a continuation of the Lead System Integrator Cohort 4 Final Report, which did not address the LSI-based billets needed for the System of Systems Mission Assurance phase (more commonly known as the “fielding of the system”) for the warfighter. The goal of this research is to discover whether a reference exists for project/program managers to properly staff their LSI teams through expanded roles and responsibilities with proper Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs). Through comparison and analysis of organizational charts, traditional NAVAIR job titles, and known LSI functional areas, this thesis tries to define position descriptions and KSAs that are needed to perform an LSI function. The study used four different program offices that state they operate projects as LSI inside their program offices.
