T. Alan Claypool
TAC4 Solutions
We help our clients find joy and purpose in doing work. We accomplish this goal with three primary initiatives:
  • Organizational Health
  • Process Improvement
  • Complex IT Project Management

We begin work in an organization focusing on corporate health: how we deal with conflict, whether staff talk behind each others’ backs, and the methods management use to align staff tasks with corporate strategies. We lead executive leadership teams through an intense training projgram to develop solutions-oriented behavior and guide them to creating clarity throughout the organization — clarity of behavior, corporate identity, strategy, and priorities.

Once clients have developed a culture that produces higher productivity, profitability, and staff engagement, we then lead them through effective process improvement for streamlined efficiency and we manage complex IT projects that otherwise fail due to bad culture and requirements management.
