About Us

Dr. Emari, PMP developed the EMARI System Thinking Approach based on his extensive research and experience of over 25 years through collaboration with great leaders and experts from various industries and backgrounds.


Committed to maintaining quality in projects by empowering my team's performance, guided by core values of excellence, exploration, and exuberance, to achieve equanimity.

Our Story

In 1953, Emari Sr. was the valedictorian of the University's School of Economics cohort when no MBA programs existed.  At the time, academics in economics were more interested in philosophical discussions on commerce law rather than practical business use. However, as a successful entrepreneur entering the academic world, Emari Sr.'s vision was to apply his academic achievement to his existing business operations. Through this vision, Emari Jr. learned that any business mission requires system thinking to integrate process engineering and operational management.

Later in 1996, Dr. Emari's path was shaped by Dr. Usmen's mentorship and advisement. After earning his Civil & Environmental Engineering Bachelor's Degree at Wayne State University, Dr. Emari was the fifth person to graduate from Dr. Usmen's newly established Construction Project Management Program at the Master's Degree level. 

Dr. Usmen envisioned his students will teach Business Management and Innovation to future students in the Construction Management Program, so he encouraged Dr. Emari to complete courses in various departments such as Law School, Urban Studies, Computer Science, Business Administration, and more... 

Through this diverse exposure to engineering and management in different fields, Dr. Emari started his Ph.D. level graduate research in Facility Management under Dr. Usmen's advisory. Dr. Emari created the first Business Intelligence (BI4FM) Dashboard in 2002 for the WSU Facility Management Department.  After 25 years of practice in the industry, Dr. Emari has collected his System Thinking Approach to help Businesses with their Digital Transformation by integrating quality through the collaboration of Mindful Leaders in a Quality Project Management Office (QPMO).
