We are excited to announce the launch of our new Complete Charrette Certificate training in Detroit, Mich., this April! Register by March 15, 2020, and save $110!

This three-day hybrid (webinar, plus in-person) training combines the content from NCI’s System and Management & Facilitation courses, plus adds new content around public participation; diversity, equity and inclusion; and dealing with conflict via guest instructors.

The Complete Charrette Certificate Training course 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; and
  • Approaches for dealing with conflict.
