Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Task 108. CEO Peer Exchange on Agency Management and Emerging Issues (2016)

Experience has shown that chief executive officers (CEOs) of state transportation agencies (departments of transportation (DOTs)) value and benefit from opportunities to discuss the challenges, experience, and strategic issues of DOT leadership with their peers. American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) staff and leadership seek to make such opportunities available periodically by organizing one- to three-day peer exchanges and leadership forums highlighting current issues facing the organization’s member agencies. Research under the NCHRP Project 20-24 series of projects over the past two decades has provided intellectual and logistical support for a number of these very popular events. The objective of this research were to organize, provide intellectual and logistical support, and document a workshop with CEOs and other senior officials to discuss strategic leadership challenges. National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) anticipates the workshop may engage AASHTO staff and possibly senior Federal Highway Administration officials as well. The typical preparation for such an exchange entails (1) identifying current issues to be the focus of workshop discussions, (2) preparing background documentation to motivate discussion, (3) convening an invited group of executives at an appropriate location, (4) facilitating these executives’ discussions, and (5) documenting the workshop in a report or other form that can be used to inform others about the matters addressed. Under this project, a workshop was held in April 2016 at the University of Minnesota.
