Root Cause Analysis Tips: 2014 Global TapRooT® Summit Attendees Share Favorite Aspects of The Summit

September 29th, 2014 by

A group from Strad Energy share their favorite aspects of the 2014 Global TapRooT® Summit. Watch their video below to learn how they are planning to implement best practices they learned at the Summit into their workplaces and how they plan to share corrective actions among each other as they move back to their respective branches of Strad Energy all across northern United States and Canada:

If you’re having trouble hearing the video, here is some dialogue:

How did you all like the Summit?

“The summit was a great opportunity for the team to build on their skills, remind us of some of the skills we forgot, provide an opportunity for all of us to get on the same page and move the TapRooT® program events forward.”

What were some of your favorite sessions?

“One of the sessions that I attended was with a really good speaker. He brought a lot of information, not just about how we do our job, but how we do our jobs more effectively and how we take that home to our families and how to better each one of us as a whole. It was very good.”

What was one of your favorite best practices that youre going to bring back to work with you?

“We, as a team, are going to share all of our TapRooT® Investigations with each other. We’re all from different regions all over Canada, Pennyslvania and North Dakota. By getting incidents, sharing it across the board, we’re going to be able to bounce ideas off of each other and find out, well “I’ve had this happen before and this is what we did” and our corrective actions are going to get a lot better because of it.”

Tell me a little bit about the reception.

“The reception was great. It was a great opportunity to get out, network, meet other companies, hang out with each other, watch some good music and really just relax at the end of the day. It was nice.”

Tell me a little bit more about this week’s team building exercise.

“This was a great opportunity since our team is spread across many different regions. It’s the first opportunity we’ve had to get the full team together. We had some exercises with some questionairres assigned and some fun assignments were assigned to group members throughout the week. It really brought us closer as a team. We had the opportunity to share some laughs and attend a lot of good sessions.”
