Making the Right Investment Decisions at the Right Time: Performance-Driven Decisions

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM, Convention Center 2018
Mara Campbell, Jacobs, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Performance Management; Standing Committee on Strategic Management; Standing Committee on Management and Productivity; and Standing Committee on Transportation Asset Management

 This workshop provides participants with a framework for understanding how to make critical transportation investment decisions—the right projects at the right time—to move the performance of the transportation agency. Departments of transportation are faced with an increasingly complex network of assets and demands; therefore, it is important to align fully integrated project execution with risk, asset, and performance management.
