Paper Abstract

Have you ever been surprised at the results of a competitive procurement? The winner or winners, the losers, the mix of the teams, the contract value, etc? In this paper I will discuss 'Program Planning in Industry" which bears directly on the above factors and also hope to provide insight into why industry sometimes does and sometimes does not choose to invest its R&D and marketing resources in optics program opportunities. Also, I hope to indicate how both government and industry benefit through open and equitable communications in their respective planning activities.
