Consider trying a new role
Host is the project owner who creates, scopes, posts and manages their Stretch Project and the participants they choose to work on the project.
Participant is the person who applies for and takes part on a Stretch Project.
Manager(s) of those participating and hosting a project play a critical role as advocates. They give approval for work to be done outside their employees' usual work scope and should always be kept informed.
Good to know
Anybody can be a host or participant.
For example, an individual contributor can host projects. You do not need to be a manager to be a host.
An individual can fulfill more than one role at any given time.
For example, you can participate on someone else's project and host your own project at the same time.
One project can have multiple roles.
For example, a project can have two hosts and five participants with varying roles.
