The Clarity Experience

Facilitate discovery, organizational alignment and priority mapping with intelligent success metrics for remarkable clarity.


To answer a single question that, when answered, will produce remarkable success.







Each member of the team to be fully present and participate in the Clarity Experience to:

  • Ensure all vital items are included
  • Dialogue the unspoken issues
  • Identify gaps and time for resolve
  • Experience flow and ownership
  • Clearly see the pathway to success


Clarity – Visibility of key issues and the priority list to establish a strategic plan that, when executed, turns the key question into a statement of success.

Alignment – Team understands the relationship of key issues to the action required to accomplish goals. New commitment to execution.

Action – Team culture advances and efficiency increases.  Activation of support to achieve measurable success.

The Clarity Experience has roots in the Japanese Hoshin, a disciplined strategic planning process that is largely unknown outside of Japan.

Hoshin significantly advanced through the work of American quality pioneer Dr. W. Edwards Deming post WWII.

Hoshin (Japanese HO = Method, and SHIN = Shiny star showing direction, like a compass)

Speed is the currency of business and the Hoshin approach unto itself needed to work quickly. The result: a simultaneous integration of all the issues surfaced during the Clarity Experience and a strategy to reach the organization’s aims, with the greatest efficiency (minimum waste) and maximum impact (focusing on the vital few rather than the trivial many) in the shortest possible cycle time.

The Clarity Experience combines accelerated learning techniques with inspiration from Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller and Dr. Edward Deming, resulting in the most powerful strategic planning tool available.
