Is It Better To Be Fast or Good?

September 12th, 2018 by

Imagine the old west. Two gunslingers standing 20 yards apart. It’s time to draw.

Would it be better to be fast or good? As Wyatt Earp said:

Fast is fine. Accurate is final.

What does this have to do with root cause analysis?

I had someone ask me the other day:

How long should a simple root cause analysis take?

If you use Spin-A-Cause™, the answer is about 5 seconds.

Spin A Cause

But you have to answer the question …

Do you want FAST or GOOD?

But what if you could have BOTH?

That’s what the 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training and the book, Using the Essential TapRooT® Techniques to Investigate Low-to-Medium Risk Incidents, is all about. Fast and Good simple investigations.

We selected the minimum number of powerful root cause analysis tools and built a simple process to perform simple investigations fast and accurately.

How long does it take to apply these techniques? Maybe 30 minutes to an hour once you have the information you need to answer the questions. Maybe slightly longer. Maybe longer yet if the incident turns out not to be “simple.”

The biggest variable is collecting the information (evidence). The second biggest variable is the requirements of your investigation system (presentations to management and approval red tape).

So if you are ready to be fast and good, sign up for one of our public 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Courses today. Here are the upcoming dates and locations:

Learn TapRooT® in Seattle

August 20th, 2018 by

Register here for TapRooT® Training on October 24, 2018, in Seattle, Washington: 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training.

Exposure to the 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training in Seattle will equip you to find and fix the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, precursors, operational errors, hospital sentinel events, and other types of problems. Essential Techniques include: SnapCharT®, Root Cause Tree® & Corrective Action Helper®.

A TapRooT® course is a career booster and can be a professional game changer for you. You’ll be amazed at how much you learn that you can immediately apply! Start your personal and professional growth in Seattle.  

While in the shadow of the iconic, 605-foot-tall Space Needle spire, you will want to get out and about. Below, to route you to points of interest and incredible edibles, we’ve included highlights of this seaport city. Dscover even more gems to explore on our Seattle Pinterest board.

A coastal walk, a satisfying seafood feast, and a connection with Seattle’s quirky culture and its walkable, breathtaking scenery—there’s something in Seattle that you will want to discover.

Experience Seattle

Lean into the beauty that is Puget Sound. Take a cruise or ferry across this immense Pacific Ocean inlet, along its forested shores, and delight in sailing smooth salt waters. Puget Sound has more than 170 islands, some connected by bridges, so there’s much to explore here. Kayaking and boating, hiking and biking, birding, whale-watching, diving and snorkeling, golfing—the Sound is rich in recreative adventures.

Soar over Seattle as Wings Over Washington transports you on a virtual aerial ride of the whole state—from Mount Ranier’s glacier-topped peaks to Olympic National Park’s seashore cliffs.

If you are up for a great view from the heights, overlook Elliott Bay from the Seattle Great Wheel (the West Coast’s tallest ferris wheel). Walk along Waterfront Park for inspiring views. Wander through masterworks along the zigzag path of the Olympic Sculpture Park. 

Take in aircraft and space vehicles plus historical exhibits at the Museum of Flight. Explore flight simulators, get a feel for what pilots experience, see the aviation pavilion and watch a 3D movie, and take a Boeing field tour.

For an artistic must-do in Seattle, visit Chihuly Garden and Glass, the international glass headquarters of Fulbright Fellowship recipient Dale Chihuly, and browse the Glasshouse. 

Taste Seattle

Can you say “pancake heaven”? Take a fork to breakfast at Portage Bay, its four locations serve up hefty portions and, yes, you might want to make a reservation.   

You may not be shopping for seafood, but duck into the very entertaining Pike Place Market that overlooks the Elliott Bay waterfront. It’s among the oldest continuously operated farmers market in America, serving patrons since August 17, 1907. Have dinner here, browse some of the independent shops, or taste-test excellent Northwestern adult beverages. For an eatery inside the market, sit down at Place Pigalle.

Chocoholics will want to investigate the free samples and perhaps a tour of Theo Chocolate Factory, a frontrunner in sustainable and organic cocoa bean practices that bills itself as “a company rooted in chocolate.”

Enjoy gazing over glistening waters of Elliott Bay while dining at Elliott’s Oyster House. Or, choose from among the eateries at Pier 57’s Miners Landing. Try the Salmon Cooker for fast, good, and relatively inexpensive fare. The Cooker serves up Alder-smoked salmon, halibut, and cod, classic fish and chips and clam chowder, as well as fresh oysters, Dungeness crab, shrimp and crab cocktails, and beer. Finish off with homemade ice cream. Try one of the other Miners Landing restaurants—the Crab Pot or Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar. There’s also Alaskan Sourdough Bakery, which offers breakfast in addition to baked goods. Another eatery to try is AQUA by El Gaucho for both fresh seafood and custom-aged steaks.

For those fond of cider, check out the award-garnering Schilling Cider House. The cider shop offers more than 30 craft ciders and features tastings and classes. 

Of course, we can’t leave Seattle without a coffee encounter since it’s home to the following roasters and servers and then some.

If tea is more your taste, visit among these tea hotspots to find your best hot brew.

Remembering An Accident: Sayano-Shushenskaya Hydroelectric Dam

August 2nd, 2018 by

One of the world’s largest hydroelectric plants, Sayano-Shushenskaya Hydroelectric Dam, suffered a catastrophic failure On August 17, 2009, that lead to the death of 75 people, and the pollution of the Yenisei River with 40 tons of oil spilling into it. So how did a major incident like this happen?

On the day of the accident the dam was undergoing major repairs and upgrades. Nine of the ten turbines were operating at full capacity, even the troublesome  #2 turbine. This turbine had previously been offline because of persistent vibrations and maintenance issues, but it was brought back online the previous night. A fire at the Bratsk Power Station caused a drop in electricity production and the decision was made to run Turbine #2 to help with the electrical shortage.

Just before 8:13 am large vibrations were felt by a technician worker on the roof, and according to his recount of the the incident the vibrations gradually grew into a load raw. Shortly after two massive explosion occurred and turbine #2 shoot through the floor 50 feet into the air, and then it came crashing back down. The water that was spinning the turbine was now gushing out at a rate of 67,600 gallons a second. The gushing water produced massive amounts of pressure that ripped the room apart leading to the roofs collapse.

Eventually the gushing water flooded the lower levels and submerged the other turbines. Unfortunately, the plant’s automatic safety system failed to turn off turbines #7 and #9, which were operating at full capacity. This triggered short circuits that left the plant in total darkness adding to the confusion and mayhem.

Several employees struggled to manually close the pen-stock intake gates, and finally succeed at 9:30 am putting an end to the disastrous incident. Because of communication failures and system failures 75 people lost their lives, many were injured, and 40 tons of oil polluted the Yenisei River. Restoring the damage caused by the explosion took years and it cost US$89.3 million to complete.

How Do You Get to Brazil?

July 29th, 2018 by

Come to Brazil and learn TapRooT® through one of these courses in the fascinating city of Sao Paulo:

Did you know Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro is one of the 7 Wonders of the World?

  • Related image

Brazil is known for spectacular beaches, the flamboyantly colorful Carnival, and its symbolic statue of Christ the Redeemer at the peak of Corcovado Mountain.

    • Brazil is also home to Sao Paulo, the financial hub of Brazil and where world-renowned Pele played at the legendary stadium Pacaembu.

    • Did you know each Brazilian city has at least one soccer stadium?
  • It’s been called “one of the most beautiful bridges in the world” and “the bridge with the complicated name”—Octavio Frias de Oliveira bridge, or Ponte Estaida, over the Pinheiros River in Sao Paulo is known for its unique architecture. This national landmark is the only bridge in the world with an X-shaped supporting structure, with the cruciform prop supporting two crossing roads of different heights. The bridge’s nighttime lights are spectacular.

    2014-05-23-monkey1955130.jpg

    Fun fact: Brazil has more species of monkeys than anywhere else on earth.

    Se Cathedral and square Free things to do in Sao Paulo

    Sao Paulo See Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral da Se): Statuesque palms line the square, framing this neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Archdiocese. The structure and its Renaissance-styled dome are inspired by the Cathedral of Florence, and more than 800 tons of unique marble were used to construct the building. All the furniture, mosaics, and sculpture were transported by ship from Italy.

    Patio do Colegio, or “Courtyard of the College,” is Sao Paulo’s oldest building and a historical Jesuit church and school. The Pátio do Colégio is home to the Museu Anchieta, which features a fascinating collection of artifacts and records from the 16th century.

    The Julio Prestes Cultural Center: The Julio Prestes Cultural Center, or the Sala Sao Paulo, was once a train station. With its terrific acoustics and a cool, adjustable ceiling, the hall is a copy of Vienna’s Great Musikverein Hall. The Symphony Orchestra of São Paulo (OSESP) performances are some of the most-attended events in the city. A visit here pairs well with some of the other area attractions: Pinacoteca, Museu da Arte Sacra (Sacred Art Museum), and the Parque da Luz

Image result for pedra grande

Pedra Grande: Take a hike on the trail; paraglide the skies over Sao Paulo; take in panoramic views—all from this gem in the middle of the city.

Botanical Garden Of Sao Paulo: With exotic flora, the garden is conservatory of luxuriant landscapes and impressive collections of ornamentals, trees, and groves, as well as many lakes. See the orchid collection; visit the bamboo groves; dine at the great restaurant.

Get a Taste of Brazil

Try what the locals love: Bacalhau is a Brazilian-adopted Portuguese dish containing onions, olives, tomatoes, potatoes, and herbs. Fried fish cakes (bolinho de bacalhau) are consumed with gusto (and often with beer). Tiny tasty rolls (pão de queijo) eaten typically for breakfast—you would call them “cheese bread”—with a cup of coffee with milk (pingado), found in Brazilian bakeries.

Experience the falafels, crispy on the outside and filled with goodness, at Tent of the Nile (Tenda do Nilo).

Taste an African-influenced fritter (acarajé) at Star City

Indulge your sweet tooth at Casa Mathilde.

Have an afternoon or evening drink at Frank Bar.
