  2. Whether it be Six Sigma, LEAN, Safety Culture, Just Culture, or High Reliability, what
    lies at the core of every effort to improve organizational performance? Human
    Performance. In this video, Tim Autrey develops a simple definition for “human
    performance” which is: “Why we do what we do the way we do it.” By identifying the
    specific elements inherent within this definition, this video lays the foundation for taking
    any performance improvement effort to its next level.

  3. Metrics are important. W. Edwards Deming taught us that what gets measured gets
    improved. Technology has certainly fueled the “more is better” philosophy when it
    comes to metrics and indicators. At some point, however, it becomes [very]
    appropriate for you to question whether “more” is truly better. When does the cost of
    acquiring, processing, and analyzing the data exceed the return of value that it
    provides? In addition, might some indicators (and the way you are displaying them)
    result in unintended consequences when it comes to human behaviors and human
    performance? These are the questions considered by Tim Autrey in this video.

  4. When considering efforts to enhance human performance, it is wise to consider how
    such a focus will impact other improvement efforts you may already have underway efforts
    such as personnel and process safety, six sigma, LEAN, quality improvement,
    high reliability, human error reduction, safety culture, just culture, etc. In reality, there
    is one thing that every one of these efforts has in common- people. In this video, Tim
    Autrey discusses how a focus on human behavior supports and reinforces every good
    thing you are already be doing.

  5. How can you get workers to do the “right” thing…even when no one else is watching?
    The reality is, the only way people are going to do anything when no one else is around
    is if they…want to. Tim Autrey highlights how to leverage this critical aspect of human
    nature to promote right and safe behaviors.
