The U.S. Navy's capabilities regarding the entire sequence of ships and shipboard systems acquisition (research, development, testing, production, deployment, and operations/maintenance of ships and shipboard systems) needs continuous improvement to counter advancing threats. Engineering Duty Officers (EDOs) have long been associated with these capabilities in both technical and leadership positions. Over the years, the range and complexity of these professional areas have increased, and some of the developmental leadership opportunities have become diluted. This study will conduct a focused analysis of the current fundamental leadership and professional development for EDOs in comparison with those of other Navy communities and Department of Defense (DoD) agencies and with private best practices. It will then focus on determining the leadership experiences required to prepare EDOs to successfully take command and lead the Navy's large, complex civilian organizations such as shipyards or regional maintenance centers. Based on findings, we will make recommendations for improving the EDO community talent management practices to successfully prepare EDOs for command and leadership of major shore acquisition commands. The study's findings will impact the Navy's capabilities regarding the research, development, testing, production, deployment, and operations and maintenance of ships and shipboard systems.
