Two-week post-LCL Advanced Tier instructor-facilitated training for ACAT I/II DoD PSMs focuses on enhancing a PSM’s success in planning for and executing fielding and sustainment of covered weapon systems within the framework of 10 U.S.C. §4324 & DoD policy. Addresses PSM roles & responsibilities, leadership, proven practices, affordable/effective product support strategies, and enables leveraging of executive-level case studies to challenge PSMs with real-world product support scenarios. Facilitated discussions on product support include such topics as Intellectual Property Rights, funding, partnerships, sustainment plans, product support analysis, contracts, and performance based logistics. Participants also analyze challenges and opportunities to improve sustainment performance while reducing costs and risks. Customized tools are leveraged for enhancing skills at leading teams, influencing stakeholders and continuing professional development. Students develop and defend creative and comprehensive solutions, as well as leverage the Stakeholder Tactical Engagement Plan (STEP) tool to develop strategies to address stakeholder challenges. Students also develop and deliver a real-world, relevant lesson-learned presentation which provides opportunities for peer feedback, and in-depth cross-Service communication & problem-solving. Course affords students the opportunity to hear from a range of DoD, Service, and industry leaders in each offering, with frank and candid discussion on a wide-range of sustainment challenges. Interdisciplinary emphasis includes product support, business, cost estimating, funds management, systems engineering, contracting, and program management topics. Focus areas also include leadership, critical thinking, and cross-functional integration.
