Things to Do in Seattle

July 23rd, 2014 by

MarkTeach

I am one of the instructors for the upcoming 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Traning in Seattle and I thought I’d pass along some of the great things to do in your spare time (after hours) while attending the course. 

Seattle is a great place to eat, shop, and have fun so I’ve listed my favorite places to eat and visit below with links to more information. I’ve also listed a few ideas for the weekend before or after for those who want to get outside of Seattle and see the impressive natural wonders nearby. 

Food

Wild Ginger - If you like asian food, try this.

Metropolitan Grill – Best steaks in the USA

The Brooklyn Seafood, Steaks, & Oysters – I recommend getting the oyster sampler.

Ivar’s Acres of Clams – I love their clam chowder and prices are reasonable.

The Cheesecake Factory – Always one of my favorites no matter where I go.

Kells Irish Pub - Love the atmosphere, beer, and the food is good (and a ghost).

Fun Activities

Space Needle and World’s Fair Park

Seattle Aquarium

Seattle Mariners – In town playing the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (night games) of the course. 

Seattle Art Museaum

Seattle Underground

Seattle Ferries

Tillicum Village Cruise and Samon Dinner

Shopping

REI Co-Op

Nordstroms

Pike Place Market

The Weekend Before/After Ideas

Olympic Peninsula

Mount Raineer

July 17th, 2014 by

US BLS Releases Statistics on Workplace Deaths

June 5th, 2014 by

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 4.32.20 PM

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics release some interesting information about workplace fatalities in a recent press release.

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 4.32.09 PM

It would be interesting to see these statistics graphed on an XmR Chart … as we teach in our Advanced Trending Techniques Course. If you are interested in learning advanced trending techniques, you missed our 2014 course. But we are planning to offer the course again on June 1-2, 2015 prior to the 2015 TapRooT® Summit (June 3-5, Las Vegas, NV). I know that’s a long ways ahead to start planning but you probably can’t say that your schedule is already full.

One more note, if you have a bunch of folks at your company who need to learn advanced trending techniques, we can come to your site to present the course. If you are interested, CLICK HERE to contact us.
