Gabe's Take on the DAG

The proper name of one of the hundreds of Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG) processes:

Technical Planning Technical Management Process

A real term with a unreal meaning. Can somebody help me out here?

I'll take a wild guess and say that the standards/regulations for titles of such books do not allow special characters such as ampersands. So when someone submitted the title as "Technical Planning & Technical Management Process" it got "corrected".

I so wish that were true. Anybody else? It's really quite simple. I can explain it in about 5 pages.

"A real term with an unreal meaning" - Gabe, you're a poet, man. That's a lovely phrase!

(and I have no idea what the TPTMP is...)
