Session 1
Shane Bush, Co-founder BushCo HPI
Shane Bush will come and present what Human Performance Improvement (HPI) is all about. Statistics and results of other organizations/companies, who have already implemented this process, will be discussed. Attendees will hear about the HPI tools and defenses that are intended to reduce individual error rates, but more importantly reduce the “Consequences” of errors at critical steps.
Human Performance Principles
1. People are fallible, and even the best make mistakes.
2. Error-likely situations are predictable, manageable, and preventable.
3. Individual behavior is influenced by organizational processes and values.
4. People achieve high levels of performance based largely on the encouragement and reinforcement received from leaders, peers, and subordinates.
5. Events can be avoided by understanding the reasons mistakes occur and applying the lessons learned from past events.
