About the Event
Today’s DOT is not the same as even ten years ago. CEOs need to be able to quickly respond to changing public priorities, legislation, and business practices; engage new generations of workforce; work within constrained budgets yet produce the same quantity and quality of work; use technology to work better, faster, and cheaper; manage both risk and performance; and understand transportation’s role in the day-today economy of their state and the nation—just to name a few.
This forum provided CEOs and other senior management with opportunities to discuss concrete examples of how DOTs are responding to the forces for change in how they do business. It also highlighted things management needs to know to ensure that DOTs serve effectively in the future. Forum topics and underlying subject matter were selected to address high-priority concerns for senior DOT executives. The forum also offered an opportunity for in-depth, peer-to-peer discussion by CEOs. It was a unique setting that allowed CEOs to consider current trends, leadership experiences, and best practices and to identify research and other AASHTO, TRB, and FHWA initiatives that will strengthen state DOTs.
