Two dozen PSMs plus speakers from the military services, Pentagon, DAU and defense industry share their lessons-learned and leadership tips, and debate best practices for product support. Facilitated discussions on product support include such topics as Intellectual Property Rights, funding, partnerships, sustainment plans, 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.
