About

Clarrus is a down-to-earth, value-driven company with a focus on improving project teams and the projects they work on, across all industries. We were founded by Principal and Author, Jim Brosseau in 2002.

Clarrus is unique in that it understands the interplay of human dynamics and project mechanics. Our consulting services and workshops bring a practical and proven approach to increasing the effectiveness and satisfaction of your project teams and delivering results.

Clarrus also provides “self-help” for project teams through a highly practical book and easy online diagnostic tool that gives you clarity into what’s working for and against your team and project.

Our Approach

Clarrus believes in the principle of teaching people to fish. Our approach nets its richest results in complex environments where multi-disciplinary teams bring diverse perspectives to the table. But, we also help small teams thrive, too. In a nutshell:

  • We harness the best of best project practices and apply only what’s needed for tangible short- and long-term results.
  • We create an environment of trust so our sometimes tough questions can open the doors to peak performance.
  • We provide inventive and practical ways for your teams to approach challenges.
  • We secure the engagement of your project teams by focusing on issues where the impact is greatest.

Project Leaders benefit from engaged and focused teams that can approach challenges in new ways to meet goals. They can bring stability to projects by building on team strengths, mitigating weaknesses and identifying key priorities.
