Capability Life Cycle (CLC)—Program Management
Dr Shari Soutberg & Dr Mike Ryan present an edVirtus professional education course that provides an overview of how program management is applied to military capability as part of the Defence Capability Life Cycle (CLC). Attendees will be shown the different forms of Defence capability and delivery Programs and the practical considerations for their implementation. This course highlights the important relationship between program management, Defence capability analysis, and engineering methods in defining and delivering joint force outcomes, interoperability, and acquisition and sustainment efficiencies. The use of key constructs and methods including System of Systems (SoS), Systems Engineering, Mission Engineering, and Enterprise Architecture will be explained particularly for development of CLC Program-level documents including: the Capability Program Directive (CPgD), the Program Operational Concept (POC), and Program Strategy (PS). A guided walkthrough of these artefacts is provided and a number of exercises are introduced to provide attendees practice in their development.
