Safety Moment - There Might Be a Cliff - Ty Maxism for the Real Workers

Ty Maxism are sayings that operations people live by in parts far north from here.

Never underestimate the power that operational leaders have in understanding the work and the workers - good leaders know thier people.

Ty just tends to drop this little nuggets in to the conversation.  I always listen for them.

PAPod 163 - Mass Shootings and Simplification

3Mar

I really struggled to make this podcast.  Not because I didn't have stuff to say (I always seem to have stuff to say) but because I was afraid I would make people angry.

I think that is a stupid reason to not do a podcast.

I hope this makes people angry - although I softened this message a lot before I posted this message.  

We need to let go of our need to blame somebody for not predicting these events and start to really talk about a system prevention to this very unique problem we have in the United States.

Our need to blame is getting in the way of our ability to improve.

Safety Moment - Risk Is Fluid

28Feb

Somehow we have been led to believe that risk is permanant.  That if you do a good enough job in risk identification...you will be come safe.

That is wrong.

Risk moves like the waves of an ocean.  Risk ebbs and flows.

PAPod 161 - The Story of Understanding Data by Understanding What is NOT Represented…Meet Abraham Wald, Mathematician

17Feb

Big Data means you have lots of information that you can use to predict and manage your systems.  Big data has been an amazing advantage for our organizations.  We need data, lots of it, to tell where we are and where we need to go

But, just but, could there be so much data that you are biased towards using the data no matter what it means to your organizaton?  Data at all cost?  Data first?  We only get what we measure?  You must be able to account for everything.

... or should you?

Here is a quick story about what the data did not show and how important that was to the future of the free world.
