NEW Summit Session: Carl Dixon Teaches the Value of Recognizing the Illusion in Ourselves and in Others

May 26th, 2016 by

Are you building an empire on an illusion? Or is it a dream?

In the course of a lifetime, we are continually obliged to choose thoughts and take actions that support our progress and our very existence. Many times a day we must make a choice of what we are going to do, how we are going to do it, and why we are going to do it. We need a guiding thought on which to base these choices, and as humans have gotten more and more removed from the basic needs of survival we have created the ability to willfully be immersed in a made-up world constructed solely of the thoughts we select.

It’s natural, and perhaps inevitable, that sometimes we meander off the path of what’s best for us when the very powerful human brain can be ordered such that we’ll believe that something false is real, or that something real is false.

Il-lu-sion
noun
1. a thing that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses.
2. A deceptive appearance or belief
3. A false idea or belief

Behaviour driven by illusion on a personal level or on an institutional scale is all around us, and is not a trifling thing. Illusion can lead either slowly or quickly to any and every kind of disaster or dissolution BECAUSE IT FLIES IN THE FACE OF REALITY.

The crash must come. “Reality will rear back and bite and bite like a snake”

When we invest our entire being, our future and our happiness into an illusion it is only a matter of time before all is lost. Yet, humankind must have hope to go forward with life and be inspired to greater effort; reality in itself does not inspire. Hope drives all progress. Humans are creative beings who need to make our world to order. We dream of what could be and set to work creating it.

How valuable then to recognize Illusion in ourselves or in others, with its twisting of what is, and distinguish it from the Real. Acknowledging the Real allows us the Dream.

“The Dream is a ladder; the illusion a wall”

Join CarDixon.Carll Dixon at the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit for this life-changing session, “A Life of Illusion – Getting to What is Real” (Best Practice Session 3) on Wednesday, August 3, 2016 from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Dixon is a Canadian rock musician who has been a part of such bands as Coney Hatch, April Wine and The Guess Who. In 2008 he was involved in a near fatal car crash that could have cost him everything. His story is more than a tale of “had it all and almost lost it”; for Carl the story became, “What now?”

“Our thoughts determine our path; if we find ourselves on a bad path it’s never too late to substitute better thoughts in place of unsatisfactory ones. We have the ability to decide our thoughts, to choose strength over weakness, courage over fear, stoicism over complaint. Sure, it’s not always easy, but it can become a habit every time you remember that the strong choice is the better choice”.

New Session in the Safety Track at the 2016 TapRoot® Summit – What Can You Learn from Criminals???

May 26th, 2016 by

Screen Shot 2016 05 25 at 10 51 12 PM

What can you learn about planning a high risk business activity from the planning for a high risk criminal activity?

Probably much more than you might think!

The Global TapRooT® Summit is all about learning from other industries and disciplines and it certainly is different learning from criminal activities and criminal investigations. This talk is based on Alan’s first hand experience with a murder investigation that will keep you riveted to his every word. Don’t miss it.

We have just scheduled a new talk in the Safety Track at the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit.  “Risk Assessing the Perfect Murder” will be held on Thursday, August 4, 2016 from 12:45 p.m. to 1:35 p.m.

Alan Smith, a former Detective Superintendant with the Grampian Police in Scotland, is now a TapRooT® Instructor and a Director of Matrix Risk Control in Aberdeen, Scotland and is leading this intriguing course.

Monday Accident & Lessons Learned: The Cost of an Accident – BP Pays Out $56 Billion So Far

May 23rd, 2016 by

The Wall Street Journal announced that BP incurred $56 Billion in expenses from the Deepwater Horizon explosion and spill. And the end is still not in sight.

BP’s CFO said “It’s impossible to come up with an estimate [of future costs].”

Of course, those costs don’t include the lives lost and the negative PR that the company has received. 

How much is a best in class process safety program worth? As BP’s CFO says …

It’s impossible to come up with an estimate.

If you would like to learn best practices to improve your safety performance and make your programs “best in class,” the at ten the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit in San Antonio, Texas, on August 1-5.

What? You say YOUR COMPANY CAN’T AFFORT IT? Can it afford $56 Billion? The investment in your safety program is a pittance compared with the costs of a major accident. Your company should put spending on safety improvement BEFORE other investments … especially in difficult times.

If you are a senior manager, don’t wait for your safety folks to ask to attend the Summit. Send them an e-mail. Tell them you are putting a team together to attend the Summit with you to learn best practices to prevent major accidents. Ask them who would be the best people to include on this team. Then get them all registered fot the Summit.

Remember, the Summit is GUARANTEED

GUARANTEE

Attend the Summit and go back to work and use what you’ve learned.
If you don’t get at least 10 times the return on your investment,
simply return the Summit materials and we’ll refund the entire Summit fee.

Wow! A guaranteed ROI. How can we be so sure that you will return to work with valuable ideas to implement? Because we’ve been hosting these Summits for over 20 years and we know the “best of the best” attend the Summit and we know the value of the ideas they share each year. We’ve heard about the improvements that Summit attendees have implemented. Being proactive is the key to avoiding $56 Billion dollar mistakes.

So don’t wait. Get your folks registered today at:

Which Pre-Summit Course Should You Choose???

May 19th, 2016 by

Each year Mark Paradies, President of System Improvements, picks courses to hold prior to the TapRooT® Summit. He chooses the courses to help TapRooT® Users learn even more about root cause analysis and performance improvement… lessons that go beyond the standard 2-Day and 5-Day TapRooT® Courses.

Chris

What are the courses scheduled for August 1-2?

WHICH COURSE IS RIGHT YOU?

I’ll provide some background on each course so that you can choose the course that will provide the knowledge you need to help your facility reach the next level in improving safety, quality, patient safety, root cause analysis, trending, or equipment reliability.

TapRooT®/Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis

Are you responsible for equipment troubleshooting and root cause analysis?

Do you need to improve your plant’s equipment reliability?

This course has been completely redeveloped and focused on solving equipment problems. Ken Reed, Vice President at System Improvements and lead for Equifactor® will be one of the instructors.

The course is equipment focused, but you don’t have to be an engineer to attend. Anyone who looks into the causes of equipment failures as part of:

  • equipment troubleshooting
  • safety investigations
  • environmental releases
  • quality issues

can benefit from this systematic approach to discovering why equipment failures occur.

The course teaches techniques for equipment troubleshooting developed by equipment expert Heinz Bloch. It combines those techniques with the world-renowned TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis System to make a best-of-class system for finding the causes of equipment troubles.

The text for this course is the new book: Using Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tools and TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis to Improve Equipment Reliability

2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training (The revised course)

The 2-day TapRooT® Course has been around for over 20 years. This year we decided to go back to the basics and focus the course on performing investigations of low-to-medium risk incidents. We developed a new 50 page book (Using the Essential TapRooT® Techniques to Investigate Low-to-Medium Risk Incidents) that goes with the course.

The course teaches the essential TapRooT® Techniques in an easy to use new simplified 5-Step Investigation Process. You will learn to:

  • Use the SnapCharT® Diagram to collect and organize information and understand what happened.
  • Identify Causal Factors using the new, simplified three question method
  • Use Safeguard Analysis to help quickly identify Causal Factors.
  • Find root causes using the latest TapRooT® Root Cause Tree® and Dictionary.
  • Develop effective but simple fixes to improve performance.
  • Identify Generic Causes if you want to go beyond the simple process.

You will practice each of these skills to become proficient. In this new course you get more practice than you did in the old course. And each team will take one of their own incidents through the process to find root causes and develop effective fixes.

If you want to learn to use a state-of-the-art root cause analysis process to perform quick investigations of low-to-moderate risk incidents, THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU.

If you are a Certified TapRooT® Instructor, you may want to attend this course to see all the new things you will be teaching (including new animated examples).

Understanding and Stopping Human Error

Dr. Joel Haight, a TapRooT® User since 1991 and a Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, will teach you to analyze and understand human error. This course teaches many of the techniques covered in a university human factors course in a modified short course format.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • Basic understanding of visual, auditory, tactile and vestibular senses.
  • Understanding reaction time and decision making.
  • Understanding physical human performance (ergonomics).
  • Factors that influence human error (stress, fatigue, equipment design,/automation, training, and social factors)
  • Nuclear industry human performance tools (attention to detail, questioning attitude, and error traps/precursors, peer checking, 3-way communication, procedure use, peacekeeping, pre-job brief/SAFER, post-job brief, observation/coaching, STAR, and time out)
  • Practical questions for incident investigators
  • Quantitative/Qualitative methods (THERPS, MAPPS, OAT, and FTA)

If you are interested in an overview of techniques focused on human error to augment your standard incident investigations, this course is for you.

Using TapRooT® for Audits

May 18th, 2016 by

pablo (96)

Happy Wednesday, and welcome to this week’s root cause analysis column.

This week I wanted to share an excerpt from our new book which will be coming out on August 1st, TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Audits and Proactive Performance Improvement. I hope this small part of the book will help you start to think about being more proactive.

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure.”
Ben Franklin

Around the world, professionals and companies have sought to find a better way to perform investigations on problems and losses. Many of the smartest people and leading companies use TapRooT®.

The TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis System is a robust, flexible system for analyzing and fixing problems. The complete system can be used to analyze and fix simple or complex accidents, difficult quality problems, hospital sentinel events, and other issues that require a complete understanding of what happened and the development of effective corrective actions. However, wouldn’t it be better if you never had to do investigations in the first place?

Many companies do perform audits. Unfortunately, in some cases, this work does not yield improvements. Why? There are many reasons, but the primary reason is lack of good root cause analysis. A company can actually be very good at finding problems, but not be effective at FIXING problems.

Beyond auditing, proactive improvement can take many forms, and when effective, becomes an overall mindset and can put an organization on the path to excellence. If that is the case, why are more companies not proactive? Here are just a few reasons:

  • Time (perceived at least)
  • They don’t have a reason to (not enough pain)
  • They do not have the buy-in (management and employee support)
  • Procrastination (human nature!)
  • They don’t know how (this is where TapRooT® comes in!)

TapRooT®, when used with auditing and proactive improvement programs, can help lead to organizational excellence and reduce the number of investigations required.

Would you like to be one of the first people to get the new book? If so, attend our new course, TapRooT® for Audits, at the Global TapRooT® Summit, August 1-2, in San Antonio. To register for the course (and the summit on August 3-5, click HERE

Hospital Patient Safety – Shouldn’t We Have Made More Progress?

This is a TV report from 2007 …

Truthfully, we could make the same video today.

Why haven’t we made more progress to improve patient safety?

Each year we have a Track at the Global TapRooT® Summit about improving patient safety. If the good practices we present each year had been implemented across the country … we would be much better off.

What is the MOST Important Idea You Will Take Back to Work from the 2016 Summit?

May 5th, 2016 by

I’ve been to hundreds of conferences in my professional lifetime. I usually take at least one good idea away from every conference I attend. But some of the most impactful ideas for performance improvement that I’ve ever had have come from the TapRooT® Summit.

That got me thinking …

What is the MOST Important Idea I Will Take Back to Work from the 2016 Summit?

Hmmm…

First, I’m really looking forward to hearing the Keynote talks. See the Keynote talks here:

http://www.taproot.com/taproot-summit/keynote-speakers

I know I will be inspired and have several key take-aways.

NationGrid

Then have a look at the various schedules for the 9 tracks. He’s what stood out to me…

  • TapRooT® Users Share Best Practices
  • Learning from the Best Maintenance Program in the U.S.A.
  • 7 Deadly Sins of Human Performance
  • The Bhopal Disaster: A Definitive TapRooT® Analysis
  • Grade your Investigation
  • Weatherford’s Global Journey to HSE and Quality Improvement with TapRooT®
  • Human Error Causes of Quality Problems
  • What’s New in the TapRooT® Software
  • Character Driven Success
  • Interviewing Behaviors & Body Language
  • Improve Accountability, Execution and Performance
  • Certified TapRooT® Instructor Recertification Workshop
  • Building Reports and Templates Using the TapRooT® Software
  • What’s Holding You Back – Common Barriers to Process Excellence

And that list is a problem. There are more sessions listed than I can go to! I’m going to have to pick from the list. Of course, I have to pick the ones where I’m presenting! But you may like somethings else. There are 41 different breakout sessions that may line up with the most pressing issues you are facing at work.

Group

Many of the sessions provide an excellent opportunity for networking and benchmarking. The most important idea you take away might come from sharing best practices with others.

And the Pre-Summit Courses are another place to learn ideas that will help your facility maintain a work-class performance improvement program. I select the courses we offer each year to address the problems that I see our clients are facing. Here are the courses being offered before this year’s Summit:

  • Advanced Causal Factor Development Course (New)
  • Advanced Trending Techniques
  • TapRooT® Analyzing and Fixing Safety Culture Issues
  • Risk Assessment and Management Best Practices
  • 2-Day TapRooT® Quality Process Improvement Facilitator Course (New)
  • Getting the Most from Your TapRooT® Software
  • TapRooT® for Audits (New)
  • Interviewing & Investigation Basics (New)
  • Understanding and Stopping Human Error 
  • 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course
  • 2-Day Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis (New)

What will you learn at the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit that will save lives, stop quality issues, improve equipment reliability, or improve productivity at your facility? Review the sessions and see what you think. But don’t miss out on your chance to make a difference at your facility by implementing great ideas to improve performance.

Confidential Medical Records Leak Sinks $4.6 Million Company

April 27th, 2016 by

medical-781422_1280

What are the lessons learned from this incident?

Everything was going great for Michael Daughtery, owner of LabMD, a company that tested blood, urine, and tissue samples for urologists. He was living the dream. That is, until one of his managers who had been using LimeWire file-sharing to download music inadvertently shared patient medical records with it. It was a violation of company policy to have it on her computer.

The story goes from bad to worse. Read “A leak wonded this company. Fighting the Feds finished it off” on Bloomberg.

In one day, your whole life could change.  Wouldn’t it be great if you never got that phone call that disaster has struck your company?

We have several exclusive Pre-Summit Courses coming up in August that can help you keep your company from facing a crisis such as this.  TapRooT® for Audits, Understanding and Stopping Human Error, Risk Assessment & Management and more.

View them here.

We also offer a Medical track immediately following the special 2-day courses at the 3-day Global TapRooT® Summit.  Learn more here.

We hope to meet you in San Antonio, Texas during Global TapRooT® Summit week to help you solve your business-critical issues.
