The 2023 Global TapRooT® Summit is being held on April 24-28 at the Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe, near Houston, Texas. There are eight best practice tracks. This article explains what you will take away from the Improving Human Performance Track.

When you combine the Improving Human Performance Track at the Summit with the pre-Summit Stopping Human Error Course, you have a one-two punch to energize and reinvigorate your efforts to improve human performance.

Human Performance Improvement Track Sessions

Here are the sessions that make up the Human Performance Improvement Track:

Please Note: You can customize your Summit experience by choosing sessions from one of the seven other best practice tracks if one or two of the sessions in the Improving Human Performance Track aren’t right for you.

The Improving Human Performance Track is an important part of the Summit, but the Summit is so much more.
