This Summit is Outstanding! … But Hard to Pick Which Talks to Attend (So Many Good Ones To Choose From) … Here’s How You Can Choose Your Favorite Sessions

The TapRooT® Summit has 12 Best Practice Tracks. They are:

  • Behavior Change & Stopping Human Error
  • Career Development
  • Certified TapRooT® Instructor
  • Corrective Action Program
  • Eliminating Hospital Sentinel Events
  • Equipment Reliability & Maintenance
  • Investigation & Root Cause Analysis
  • Operations Excellence
  • Safety Management Systems & Measuring Performance
  • Safety, Process Safety, & Risk Management
  • Spanish Speaking TapRooT® Users
  • TapRooT® Software Super User/Administrator

To see the detailed schedules and to create your own custom schedule (starting with a particular track and then customizing it by picking talks from other tracks) start by clicking on this link:


Next, click on the button on the left side for the track that you are most interested in. You might want to review several tracks to see the variety of speakers (there are 70 speakers overall).

You can click on the title for any session and see details about the talks. If you want to know more about a particular speaker, look them up at this link:



The speakers are in alphabetical order by last name.

For any particular session, you can click on the “Modify” button beside the session times and you will see all the talks being offered at that time and the one in your track will automatically be selected. To pick a different talk and customize your schedule, just click on the talk that you like best.

One other thing to customize your experience at the Summit is to choose one of the optional “Networking Sessions” that are listed just below the track list.

When you’ve completed your customization, click on the register link and your customized track should be automatically loaded in the registration form.

What’s the most difficult thing about attending the Summit? Picking what sessions that you are going to attend. After all, you can only be at one place at a time! (Of course you could bring a team from your facility to cover everything. lots of companies do it because they things they bring back to work are so valuable … business critical!)

Don’t take my word for it … Here’s a comment from a past TapRooT® Summit attendee who just completed the registration for the 2009 Summit:

I made a point of getting my Summit registration taken care of today …

Wow – this was the hardest set of choices yet. Lots of talks I wish I could see, but only one of me to do it. Great lineup, tough choices every single breakout session!

Each Summit gets better and better. I thought it would be hard to top last year, but you guys have outdone yourselves this time, again.

Looking forward to Tennessee in October.

See you then.”
