What did I discuss?

“As our businesses enter the new phases of a return to post-pandemic life, it will be critically important for leaders to be proactive with their employees and customers – for the sake of the health of our people and our organizations.” 

Here are the learning objectives…

By the end of this webinar, you will:

  • Recognize the difference between merely containing a COVID-19 related problems and preventing them from occurring again, especially if we see a fall resurgence.
  • Learn why it's important to see problems, solve problems, and share problems in your organization.
  • Understand how to use methods like FMEA (“Failure Mode Effects Analysis”) and root-cause problem solving to be more proactive in your management and improvement efforts post crisis.

As a reader of this blog, you might be familiar with “Failure Mode Effects Analysis.” I'm hoping to use this webinar as a way of introducing this approach to a broader audience. It's a tool and framework that many just haven't been exposed to.

We can follow guidelines and best practices, but sometimes we need to proactively think through things for ourselves…
