This week I ‘d like to walk through the quick and easy process to create a new custom list in our TapRooT® VI software.

Technically Speaking is a weekly series that highlights various aspects of the TapRooT® VI software and occasionally includes a little Help Desk humor.

Remember, just because it’s technical, doesn’t mean it has to be complicated!

Great People Coming to the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit

June 29th, 2016 by

I just went through the attendance list for the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit and I was impressed. What a great bunch of people we are having come together in San Antonio!

GeneralSession04

For me, as President of System Improvements and one of the creators of the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis System, the Summit always seems like old home week or a high school reunion. I get to see some of our clients that have been working hard to save lives, improve quality, and keep their companies from getting a black eye.

We’ve been doing these Summits since 1994 and you might not believe it but, I’ve been learning new and valuable stuff at the Summit every year. 

So for all of you coming to the 2016 Global Summit,

I CAN’T WAIT TO SAY “HOWDY!”

And get caught up on what you have been doing to make the world a better place.

And for those who haven’t signed up yet,

GET HOT!

The Summit is just about a month away (August 1-5). You need to get approval, get registered, and get your travel scheduled.

What? You don’t know why you should attend? You need the knowledge shared at the Summit to …

SAVE LIVES

SAVE YOUR COMPANY $$$

IMPROVE QUALITY

OPTIMIZE ASSETS

Those are business critical topics that you need to make your company best in class.

Technically Speaking – TapRooT® VI Toggles

June 23rd, 2016 by

This week I ‘d like to introduce you to the new toggle system found in the TapRooT® VI software. The toggle system allows you to customize your preferences on how you use the software including:

-Performing a BASIC investigation (for minor incidents) or a MAJOR investigation (for more complex incidents)
-Using the Root Cause Tree® as a QUESTION view or using the classic TREE view.
-Creating Corrective Actions using a SIMPLE method or a SMARTER form.

Watch the video to see how these features make TapRooT® VI a completely flexible, customizable software solution.

Technically Speaking is a weekly series that highlights various aspects of our Version 5 software, introduces you to the upcoming TapRooT® VI release and occasionally includes a little Help Desk humor.

Remember, just because it’s technical, doesn’t mean it has to be complicated!
