Feedback form is now closed.
Recent HPRCT Conferences have proposed “Learning Groups” as an alternative approach to evaluating events, establishing causation, and defining corrective actions.  
This presentation addresses key topics necessary to “Learning Group” success, including
  • An effective and proven methodology suitable for use by “Learning Groups” that increases the likelihood of success;
  • A way to transparently document and report the work accomplished by individual “Learning Groups” (required in the US nuclear industry for dispositions of “Significant Conditions Adverse to Quality”);
  • “Red flags” that indicate the event under consideration may be beyond the scope of what is appropriately handled by a “Learning Group”; 
  • The “Blame Game” and how to avoid it; and,
  • A proven technique for avoiding the pitfall of “Group Think.”
 The methodology covered in this presentation is simple, easily memorized, flexible, and suitable for use by groups or individuals.  Participants will be able to apply the content immediately upon presentation completion.
