Is a charette a requirement for my study?
No, a charette is not a requirement but it is a very useful tool and recommended because it is likely more efficient than a series of
short in-progress review meetings. A charette is a good way to align the Vertical Team with the PDT, to meet the team where they
are at, and agree to a plan ahead for critical decisions from that point forward to the conclusion of the feasibility study.
The Charette Handbook
on the SMART Guide is a useful reference and strategic resource for both in-progress reviews and charettes, including lessons-
learned from the charettes conducted to date. (Updated May 2015)
