2012-TapRooT®-Summit-110.JPGIf you’ve been following our blog lately, you’ve noticed we’ve been busy preparing for the 2014 Global TapRooT® Summit (Horseshoe Bay, Texas, April 7 – 11, 2013).

You may have even considered signing up. I mean, who wouldn’t want to stay at the AAA Four Diamond Horseshoe Bay Resort (maybe even bring your spouse and enjoy it as a couple).

Who wouldn’t want to win great prizes, and enjoy a (literally) rock star Wednesday night reception?

And just how many chances in life do you get to meet and hear world-class speakers like Rocky Bleier?

But just when you were about to press the registration button, you thought:

Wait, I’m not sure I understand all there is to understand about TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis.
Since the TapRooT® folks are putting this together, shouldn’t I be TapRooT® trained before I attend?

First, if you are not TapRooT® trained, come to the 3-day Summit anyway.  Multiple tracks designed to share best practices within and across industries and professions make this event valuable to all. There are plenty of best practice session to choose from and you can create your own schedule if you don’t want to select a specific learning track.

And second, you can actually be TapRooT® trained before the 3-day Summit begins! We’re offering our 2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation & Root Cause Analysis Pre-Summit Course on April 7-8, 2014 as a Pre-Summit Course!

TapRooT® Techniques are designed for everyone from beginner to expert. In just two days, learn the TapRooT® Essentials to find and fix the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, near-misses, operational errors, hospital sentinel events and other types of problems.

The essential TapRooT® Techniques include:

  • SnapCharT® – a simple, visual technique for collecting and organizing information to understand what happened.
  • Root Cause Tree® – a systematic, repeatable way to find the root causes of human performance and equipment problems — the Root Cause Tree® helps investigators see beyond their current knowledge.
  • Corrective Action Helper® – help lead investigators “outside the box” to develop effective corrective actions.

Using the TapRooT® System to find and fix the real root causes of problems keeps them from happening again and again.

So take our 2-Day course and then reinforce your new knowledge at the Summit by registering for the Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Track. Make it a week of valuable learning that will contribute not only to your personal career development but also to saving lives and preventing injuries at your facility.

This is the same course we offer globally throughout the year, and what better time is there to join the global TapRooT® team than right before the Summit where all of our friends and experts meet?
