Summit Rickover Session

Mark Paradies will present “How Admiral Rickover Built the First High-Reliability Organization” at the 2023 Global TapRooT® Summit.

Mark Paradies, the speaker for this session, was interviewed by Admiral Rickover, served on two nuclear-powered ships, was qualified as an “Engineer” by NAVSEA 08 (the headquarters Nuclear Navy organization), and has studied Rickover’s methods for decades. Don’t be misled by academic studies of high-reliability organizations (performed by people who have never achieved high reliability). These high-reliability key factors are from someone who has been there, paid the price, and done that.
