How much does it cost?

  • As a general rule, an MSTC costs US$20,000-25,000. (You can use our MSTC budget planning guide.)

Who 'owns' MSTC?

  • The MSTC framework - including workshop materials, facilitator training materials, logos, etc. - whether as individual items or a combination of components – is the intellectual property of WVI. Please do not alter, share or publish the material without our permission.
  • The analysis documentation and reports generated during an MSTC workshop belong to the convening and participating agencies.
  • WV requires that a certified MSTC lead facilitator be engaged in any workshop that bears the MSTC name, in order to maximise quality and minimise risk.
