Sarah Bongiorno, planning NEXT Team member, recently traveled to Washington DC to attend an intensive training led by the National Charrette Institute and is now certified in the NCI Charrette System. This three-day training covered how to prepare for and execute a successful design charrette for a variety of project sizes and types. Using a case study project, the trainees worked together in small groups to walk through a number of project management exercises and public engagement activities to better understand and appreciate the opportunities and challenges that a multi-day charrette can offer a project. If the word charrette is not familiar to you, here is some background on the term.
