Would you like a consistent way to evaluate investigations and coach investigators to improve their skills? To provide management with better incident investigations, root cause analysis, and corrective actions? To measure the improvement of investigations over time? If this sounds interesting, then this course is for you! Join Alex Paradies and Mark Paradies for the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Webinar on June 17.

System Improvements has developed, tested, and improved a grading system for incident investigations

It is based on the TapRooT® 7-Step Process and the science of evaluation and feedback.

The system can be used directly in the TapRooT® VI Software (version 6.8 and beyond) or in an Excel spreadsheet.

This 90-minute webinar, led by Alex Paradies and Mark Paradies, will:

  • Explain how to use the grading sheets/software
  • Review the provided grading criteria
  • Provide an example of the use of the grading system
  • Allow you to try the grading system and ask questions
  • Discuss the use of the grading system by TapRoot® Users and the results they have achieved

Participants will learn to use the grading tools to evaluate and improve investigation. Participants will also consider ways to implement the grading process as part of their incident investigation process and policy. The webinar will employ GoToMeeting.

TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training is recommended but not required to attend this webinar.
