Guidebook for Project Management

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC's) project development process encompasses all work activities needed to move a transportation project from concept and project initiation to construction letting. Effective project development requires the adoption of sound — and validated — project management practices. Successful project managers have a balanced understanding of how the complex interplay of engineering, environmental, and economic issues affect different stages and facets of project development. Although KYTC has a long track record of executing complex projects, doing so is increasingly challenging due to staff attrition and the attendant loss of institutional knowledge. Today’s entry- and mid-level project managers have more responsibilities than ever but lack a trusted source of guidance to help them manage projects.
