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.

Investigative Interviewing Best Practices

June 29th, 2016 by

Last year, I had the privilege of sharing investigative interviewing best practices with attendees at the 2015 Global TapRooT® Summit. This year is even *more* exciting because it’s a brand new course that I’m co-teaching with Alan Smith of Matrix Risk Control (UK).

If you are not familiar with Alan’s impressive credentials, go here and learn about him and the best practice session he is teaching at the Summit.  You’ll also want to watch his keynote presentation from the 2015 Summit here.

We still have a couple seats left in our Interviewing & Evidence Collection Techniques Course, San Antonio, Texas, August 1-2.  If you have questions, give me a call on my direct line: 865.357.0176!

Hope you enjoy this best practices video from last year’s Interviewing & Evidence Collection Techniques Course.  Attendees at the course blew me away with their intelligent questions and thoughtful responses during our Q&A at 8 a.m.!

Come to the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit and learn to solve your most pressing issues!
