Management of projects and program within the US Defense Industry can involve timelines and variables that are foreign to other cultures and industries. However, the PMP remains the gold standard for credentialling of PMs across the globe and across industries.  As part of his PhD Dissertation, Dr Cole Kupec conducted a study to determine if the Project Management Professional credential requirements encompass the knowledge for project managers required to effectively manage defense industry projects.  The process behind his study will be discussed, as well as his findings and recommendations for the field.  

As the President and co-founder of CE Solutions Inc., a cost estimating and operations research firm based out of Huntsville, AL, Dr. Kupec is focused on delivering world-class products, analysis, and solutions to government program offices and private industry. Dr. Kupec also currently serves on the board of directors of the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association. He received his Ph.D. at Old Dominion University in Occupational and Technical Studies, Masters in Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Auburn University, and a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Wyoming. He publishes articles on a variety of topics including Andragogy, the defense industry workforce, operations research, project management, and STEM education.
