9. The Margaritaville Lake Resort is a Great Place to Have a Summit.

Houston is convenient to many of our clients, and the Margaritaville Lake Resort is a great place to hold the Summit. Here is some information about the resort…

6. Make New Friends and Connect with Old Friends.

Yes, social networks like (Facebook and LinkedIn) can help you meet new people and develop your network. But there is nothing better than meeting people face-to-face!

People meet new people during the “Name Game.”

Networking is a key part of the Global TapRooT® Summit. And we make it FUN.

You can meet people and learn from your industry but also from other industries. You can learn from your professional peers but also from people in other professions. For example:

  • Safety folks learn from quality folks.
  • Patient safety folks learn from process safety folks.
  • Nuclear industry professionals learn from aviation safety folks.
  • Equipment reliability professionals learn from CAPA professionals from the pharmaceutical industry.

This cross-functional learning is something that we are particularly good at making happen. It provides people with new ideas that they don’t get in industry or professional society-specific conferences.

5. Learn Best Practices Beyond the TapRooT® System.

I’ve had people tell me that because the Summit is named the “Global TapRooT® Summit,” they thought that it was just about TapRooT® RCA. They were surprised by how much information they learned about other performance improvement topics.

Here are some of the topics on the agenda…

  • Advanced Human and Organizational Performance Techniques (HOP 2)
  • Equipment Reliability Best Practices
  • How Admiral Rickover Built the First High-Reliability Organization
  • NASA Lessons from a Spacewalk Incident
  • How To Stop Non-Conservative Decisions
  • Setting Goals & Developing Performance Measures
  • Getting Senior Management Support for Improvement Programs

And that’s just a few.

4. Get Motivated!

Every year people compliment us on the amazing Keynote Speakers that we have at the Summit. Their talks are informative, useful, and motivating. They help you return to work with new ideas and the desire to make improvement happen.

How good is your improvement program? Benchmark against industry leaders from around the world.

Benchmarking sessions in the various tracks include:

  • TapRooT® Instructors Sharing Best Practices
  • Sharing Investigation & RCA Best Practices
  • TapRooT® Users Share Success Stories

  • Learn About Admiral Rickover’s High-Reliability Best Practices

That’s quite a list of best practice sharing providing opportunities for benchmarking.

2. Develop a Plan for Improvement

You want to take your company’s performance to the next level. To do that, you need ideas and a PLAN.

One of the unique aspects of the Global TapRooT® Summit is that the sessions are chosen to provide practical ideas for improving performance. Rick Hulse leads a session near the end of the Summit that helps you build a roadmap to success – a plan to take performance at your company to the next level.
