Program Excellence

In 2005 Aviation Week formed a community of program managers and project leads across the Aerospace and Defense industry to share best practices and lessons learned, and provide guidance from top decision-makers that would ensure performance success. Today, this Program Management Community consists of more than 3,000 Aerospace and Defense industry experts.

During the DefenseChain Conference, leaders from our Program Management Community unite to provide insight into the future of programs in space, commercial air transport and Defense. Delegates will meet and interact with leaders who are guiding massive changes in the development, production and sustainment of programs for the next decade. Delegates also take part in exclusive Aviation Week executive roundtables and special VIP receptions.

One of the highlights of the Conference is our annual 2021 Program Excellence Awards Banquet recognizing those finalists and award winners who are leading the changes in how the industry executes its business. who are improving performance processes enabling all program / project leaders to predict execution risks and opportunities.
