Why We Can't Proceduralize Everything: and Three Real-World Alternatives
Tuesday, April 6th, 2021
11:00am - 11:45am ET (GMT-5)
Unwanted errors in high-hazard industries threaten life and limb, end careers, and waste over $37 billion... each year.
Trying to eliminate all errors by "proceduralizing everything," and forcing compliance often backfires and causes more errors.
The real problem is not the errors. It's that we often treat errors as defects to eliminate instead of signals to guide us as we constantly adapt.

Folks are beginning to realize the importance of communication and collaboration...
The use of fail-safes, adaptive thinking, and peer checks are becoming part of the way we do things.”

In our Interactive Webinars, your teams get practical, evidence-based strategies, real-world examples, a common language... and often inspiration, too.
Then, in our Follow Through Advising Sessions, we roll up our sleeves and help your teams apply their new strategies to customize defenses, improve processes, and build resilience.
