Developing a clarity efficient approach

Whenever in the lifecycle a formal project uncertainty management process is first introduced, it needs to be effective immediately, and it needs to evolve effectively as the lifecycle progresses. Efficiency is important, in terms of ‘doing things right’, but effectiveness is the key, in terms of ‘doing the right things’.

An important overall objective is formal processes that are effective in this sense, because they are central to using everyone’s time and effort effectively to make the right decisions. Such processes have to emphasize ‘approximately correct answers to the right questions’ – avoiding a common tendency to focus on ‘precisely correct answers to the wrong questions’. One way to visualize what this means, which many people find helpful, is the concept of ‘clarity efficiency’.
