A TapRooT® User asked me:

“We are interested in improving human performance.
Can TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis be used for that?”

I thought,

“Of course! Our whole design effort was to make TapRooT® RCA
the world’s best system for analyzing the root cause of human error.”

But I then realized that we had made the use of TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis so transparent that this user, and probably others, didn’t know what they had. They didn’t know the power built into the system.

What Can TapRooT® RCA Be Used For?

Did you know that TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis can be used to analyze and fix:

  • human errors
  • human performance issues
  • company culture problems
  • behavior issues
  • management system failures
  • simple incidents
  • complex accidents
  • audit findings
  • equipment failures

TapRooT® RCA can be used reactively (after an incident or accident) or proactively (before an accident). The application of TapRooT® RCA is really flexible.

The Power of TapRooT® RCA is Transparent

We’ve made this flexibility and applicability completely transparent. You don’t have to be a human performance expert (a Certified Ergonomist) to use the system and get great results.

And that’s one of TapRooT® RCA’s advantages. We’ve made difficult analysis using TapRooT® RCA so easy that people don’t know all the power they have.

How can a TapRooT® User learn more about the power they have? Here are six ways…

  1. Read the blog and the weekly TapRooT® Friends & Experts Newsletter. Sign up for the newsletter HERE.
  2. Join the TapRooT® LinkedIn discussion group HERE.
  3. Attend advanced TapRooT® Training – the 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Team Leader Training.
  4. Attend the annual Global TapRooT® Summit.
  5. Read TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Leadership Lessons.
  6. Attend the Stopping Human Error Course to learn how TapRooT® RCA and other tools can be used proactively to improve human performance. See the upcoming public course dates HERE. And read a little more about developing a custom human performance improvement plan HERE.

That’s a good start, and two of the ideas are free.
