Group working together during a 2018 NCI charrette in Detroit.

This event has been rescheduled due to MSU's response to the Novel Coronavirus. Read more on the MSU 2019 Novel Coronavirus website.

As a result, the MSU National Charrette Institute has tentatively scheduled a new date for this event in August. However, we plan to be responsive to this situation and will postpone this event further if it becomes necessary to do so.  

The Complete Charrette Certificate Training is a highly interactive course which blends instruction with practicing techniques and tools learned through a case study approach and will provide participants with all the content required to successfully prepare for, manage, facilitate, and conduct a charrette. 

This course represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-design process using charrettes and includes: 

  • Project assessment tools for gauging the length and cost of a charrette using a project budget, political considerations and design difficulty. 
  • Nuts-and-bolts tools needed for managing a multiple-day charrette. 
  • Introduction to diversity, equity and inclusion, and ways to make charrette processes more inclusive. 
  • Approaches for dealing with conflict.
