Is your goal to hold a senior leader position in the Army Acquisition Workforce a position that allows you to directly affect the Army Acquisition Corps mission? If the answer is "yes," set your sights on an assignment as a Centralized Selection List (CSL) Product/Project Manager (PM) or Product Director (PD). Individuals selected for a PM/PD position are recognized as being members of an elite professional group instrumental in our mission to develop the critical systems and services that enable our Army to succeed in any mission. Competition for these positions is keen, and only the best qualified candidates are selected. PM/PD positions are among the most challenging in the acquisition workforce and, without a doubt, require hard work and personal sacrifices on the part of those who occupy them.
