Barry will be co-teaching the session “Improving Improvement” at the 2009 TapRooT® Summit, offering answers to the question: How can we get management interested in investigations, corrective actions and improvement quality? Using interactive question and answer techniques, this session will demonstrate why management has to have a direct interest in the investigation, and why management involvement in the development of corrective actions and ensuring that quality work is performed & documented within managed due dates can drive the incident rate down and make the work environment safer for everyone.
