We invited METRO members to submit challenges or problems of practice that are informed by their experience and daily operations. This exercise is sometimes referred to as the ‘reverse pitch’. The ideas presented here were intended to help fellowship applicants to focus on solving real-world problems instead of innovating within a vacuum. METRO and the advisory council assessed the pool of reverse pitches and suggested Areas of Inquiry to help fellows frame their proposals in a way that could solve cross-organizational challenges.
The period to submit pitches closed March 28th, 2016.
