EFFECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION: A SYSTEM OR PERSUASIVE LANGUAGE?
The author emphasizes that state highway agencies must be organized specifically to accommodate a persistent innovations effort and that it is vital that an innovations group not be considered identical with a research group or a research effort. The following topics discussed include organizing an innovation effort; problems associated with establishing a positive innovations effort, including the attitudes of top management, contract research, and the lack of a closed loop; and lastly, the attitudes and policy of the Virginia Highway Research Council are cited as examples of an agency which is both enlightened and progressive, and which plays a positive role in upgrading the technology employed in highway design and construction.
