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. The initiative was called Ahead of the Curve. Under Project 20-105, a research team identified source materials and developed detailed outlines for the four core courses, and (2) identified source materials and developed summary outlines for the twelve elective courses.The objectives of this project are 1) to fully develop the four core courses for Ahead of the Curve, and (2) to deliver the first core course at the July 2016 meeting of the AASHTO Research Advisory Committee.
