Aviation Week Program Excellence

Aviation Week's Program Excellence was created in response to repeated concerns about the complexity and difficulty associated with managing and leading the aerospace and defense programs that make up the industry's work.

An integral part of the A&D Programs conference, Program Excellence finalists provide first-hand insight into best practices, benchmarking and what it took to make their programs a success. Hear about the choices they made and the tradeoffs they faced.

  • Improve the performance of your program
  • Create tools to improve program leadership
  • Increase the velocity of developing future program leaders
  • Identify and recognize best practices
