What characteristics distinguish successful Army program managers from their peers? The results of this study are based on the survey data obtained from program executive officers, program managers, and acquisition students, as well as interviews conducted with successful program managers. This research identified 11 core competencies that program managers felt were important to the ideal program manager. Additionally, this study identified five competencies which distinguish successful program managers. This study evaluates each of these competencies, and examines the ability of the Defense Systems Management College (DSMC) and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to integrate these competencies into their respective curricula. This study concludes that DSMC and NPS develop a block of instruction entitled Marketing for Program Managers. This course would focus on how successful program managers apply these 16 competencies to the Army procurement system. By establishing the Marketing for Program Managers course, DSMC and NPS would ensure that future program managers are provided a blue print for becoming successful program managers.
