The Transportation Research Board (TRB) established a new Task Force – ABG05T:  Mastering the Management of Transportation Research and Training Program – to develop and deliver a coordinated and continuing training program that enhances the knowledge, skills, and abilities of individuals involved in managing transportation research and innovation programs.  State department of transportation personnel involved with different aspects of the cooperative research program represent a major focus of this training program.  Individuals from universities, consulting firms, and other agencies and groups represent additional audiences for this training program.  The objectives of this project were: 1) to identify source materials and develop detailed outlines for the four core courses for the Ahead of the Curve training program, and (2) identify source materials and develop summary outlines for the twelve elective courses.
