Support for AASHTO Committees and Councils. Development of a New Transportation System Operations Strategic Plan

The AASHTO Committee on Transportation System Operations (CTSO) strategic plan has nine goals, each with a series of strategic initiatives and proposed implementation actions that were to be updated annually. In the spring/summer of 2020, CTSO’s leadership identified a series of cross-cutting themes challenging its Working Groups to develop 2020/2021 action plans rather than updating its implementation actions within each Goal. This thematic approach has made it easier for CTSO Working Groups to review their portfolio, identify tasks, monitor their progress, and ensure effective collaboration among Working Groups and other AASHTO Committees. AASHTO also released an updated 2021-2026 Strategic Plan. This has led to a larger conversation about how best CTSO might engage strategically in the future, and what the implications are for its current planning structure and process. This project objectives are to: (1) develop a new, comprehensive strategic plan to frame CTSO’s purpose and direction, and (2) review and refine CTSO’s action orientation throughout the year to carry out its plan.
