A peer exchange allows WisDOT staff to discuss key issues directly with experts and counterparts from other state transportation agencies. A typical event involves two to three days of facilitated discussion with six to eight invited guests and the same number of WisDOT personnel. Most peer exchanges include a report-out session to a larger number of WisDOT managers. A peer exchange is an ideal method to gain in-depth knowledge from practitioners who may have experience in a topic or process that is new to WisDOT.
