Clean Scoping: Know Nothing, Expect Nothing and Observe Lots

Published 4 May, 2017 by Caitlin Walker

Clean Scoping is our way of pitching for work. Rather than deliver an ‘expert’ presentation, we arrive with a blank sheet of paper and ask lots of questions. Caitlin Walker shares some practical insights on how she goes about the process. 

What our customers say

"Clean is an excellent tool to get to the truth. It’s fabulous to help individuals explore and discover new solutions. I will use the skills and knowledge learnt in my leadership development programmes, personal coaching and in meetings."
Martine Scannell
Clean Facilitator Programme

"Undergrad and law school ruined my mind. Undergrad teachers claimed that euphemisms, clichés, analogies, assimilations and metaphors were used by the weak minds that couldn’t think creatively on their own. Law school made everything about Logos. Your book, along with other books like The Story Factor and The Righteous Mind and have started to help me turn myself back into a human being instead of a legal minded robot. Humans, when communicating not in the context of law, communicate extensively with assimilations, metaphors and stories. The human responses I’ve gotten lately with these methods have been wonderful. And, I am not really a people person. As a matter of perspective, I’ve read some Carl Rogers and some Irvin Yalom on therapy. Both are dense reads and frankly, boring. What I love about humanity (and the occasional individual) is that the Clean Approach seems to use some of that human learning/therapy history as a metaphorical baseline and then takes deep communication much farther, in a simple way. It is a relatively fun read. I am not a book worm. I got a “D” as in “DOG” in freshman English - even though, as I tried to explain to my professor, I speak English. Thanks Marian, I hope it is not an insulting over-simplification."
