A Comprehensive Study of Future Competencies for Transportation Planners

The objective of the project is to (a) identify competencies, capabilities, and knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) needed by transportation planning professionals serving state transportation agencies and other organizations with similar responsibilities and interests within the United States; and (b) develop talent selection and performance management tools for use by transportation agency management and human resource staff to recruit, retain, evaluate, and develop such professionals. These tools could include position descriptions, education and training curricula, critical competency profiles, evaluation metrics, and others.
