Report: Evaluating Implementation of NCHRP Products

Evaluation of NCHRP research implementation
Client: National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)
Audience: NCHRP managers and staff; state DOT research staff

As part of our ongoing work for NCHRP Project 20-44, CTC researchers conducted this study to evaluate the implementation of NCHRP research products. Our final report identified four key elements to successful implementation: implementation leadership, buy-in, structural support and resources, and ready-to-use products. Our work included a four-page brochure summarizing the project’s findings and 10 “Paths to Practice” case studies that highlight a range of effective approaches to implementing NCHRP research.
