Research & Innovation Implementation Program Timeline Built Infrastructure Broadened Awareness, Use and Impact Strengthened and Extended Application of System Evolution of a System
Early Years… Identify Innovation A new product/process fulfills a genuine need Planning Develop strategy for deploying innovation Communication Spread word of the Innovation Institutionalization Becomes the NEW way of conducting business Implementation Program Goals The Research & Innovation Implementation Program was created to: Maximize PennDOT’s return on investments in research Communicate & deploy research project findings Communicate & deploy “successful practices” from the field Advance PennDOT’s strategic goals and objectives
Early Years… Building the Infrastructure Innovations and research results: From concept to reality Successful Field Practices Implementation Program Manager Ready to Implement? Completed Research Projects No Yes Not Yet Develop Transfer Package Implement & Evaluate! Provide Feedback More Work Needed FHWA, AASHTO, and Other Sources Built Infrastructure Met goal to build innovation and implementation infrastructure Share Developed communication and training vehicles to share knowledge and experiences Identify Worked to identify successful research projects for widespread application Engage Teamed with District QC’s and fostered innovation
Innovations and research results: From concept to reality Developed a Checklist to determine “Winning Innovations” Early Years… Building the Infrastructure
Innovations and research results: From concept to reality Early Years… Building the Infrastructure Transfer Packages
Planning Deputate BPR Bureau of Planning & Research As Our Program Developed… Through BPR, more organizations “joined the team” including: Vance & Renz, LLC BT Harder, Inc Mary Treisbach Pennoni Associates Inc The Implementation Consultant Team 11 Engineering Districts Safety Administration Deputate Administration Deputate Local/Area Deputate Aviation Deputate BOMO BHSTE Design Highway Administration Deputate
Middle Years… Increasing Awareness, Use & Impact Broadened implementation projects and processes Developed wider engagement across the Department Became a resource to “get things done” Value added: increased effectiveness and implementation of higher impact research results
Middle Years… Innovations Implemented Some of the 30+ innovations implemented in 2007-2008: Bridge Maintenance Academy Challenge Exam Study Guide Defensive Driving Course Safer Driver Actions at Stop Signs Snow Academy Winter Leadership Presentations
Recent Years… Strengthening and Extending Implementation Initiatives with Greater Scope, Impact, & Value Strategic Focus Winter Services Strategic Plan Pavement Academy Maintenance Executive Development Program Special Point Examination Planning Workforce Development Safety Productivity
Innovations Implemented Some of the innovations implemented in 2009-2010: Driver Sanctioning: Special Point Exam Maintenance Executive Development Program (MEDP) Case Studies Motorcycle Rider Self-assessment of Risk Pavement Academy Pavement Marking Handbook Winter Services Strategic Plan
Looking Ahead… 2011-2012 In addition to communicating and deploying research results, PennDOT plans to: – Continue to grow and expand successful Implementation system – Continue to foster technology transfer and statewide communication Implementation of key initiatives like WSSP – Develop performance metrics for process improvement – Look for new ways to support strategic thinking with actionable plans
