Methodologies Synthesized into CoCreating Clarity

Note that not any single one of these methodologies, nor any particular selection of them are the focus of a CoCreating Clarity consult! Neither is any one of them more important than any other.

It is the lived synthesis of all of them — offered in simple language and laser-focused questions — that yield the bright new nuggets of information that are uniquely yours, along with the actions that follow.

Many do not need to explore such a list as this; some do, which is why it is here.

Listed here are the areas I have worked within — some disciplines studied, applied, and developed on-the-job; some methodologies discovered, adapted, and introduced (often as an early adopter and pioneer) into companies and communities to meet their various needs, and some currently being explored.
