The 5-Day TapRooT® Course Provides Practical ‘How-to’ in Finding Root Causes

Posted: March 23rd, 2014 in Courses, Testimonials

Time to draw a name in our “Recommend for a Chance to Win” contest!

And the winner is … James Dougherty!

James said,

“The 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader course is very informative and provides practical ‘how to’ guidance to get to the root cause of an event in order to take corrective action to reduce the chance of a repeat occurrence. Further through the use of TapRooT® one can conduct an systematic analysis of potential things that can go wrong or a preliminary hazard or operational analysis. TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis has been helpful to me.”

Congrats to Cyrus S. and Tony L.!

And if your name wasn’t drawn, you still may win in our future weekly drawings. Thanks for recommending us!

IMG_3228Cyrus, who recommended our 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training, noticed that TapRooT® works across all industries.  That is a comment that we love to hear, and we are looking forward to our next Global TapRooT® Summit April 7 – 11, 2014 where oil refineries, hospitals, aviation, oil E&P, nuclear plants, high tech manufacturing facilities, shipping, pipelines, mining, rail and light rail, chemical plants, and electricity transmission and distribution will all be represented.

Tony mentioned in his recommendation of our 5-Day course that he appreciates we are only a phone call or e-mail away. We strive to make folks who attend our courses and our Summit feel like they are part of the TapRooT® Team — not just an attendee.

Thank you, Tony and Cyrus, for sharing your experience with TapRooT®!
