Course description

Developing a High Reliability Organization

Today’s world is full of the unexpected. System failures, terrorism events, disease outbreaks, and superstorms disrupt businesses every day, sometimes to an unrecoverable point. Despite these challenges, some services (such as power plants, hospitals, and airports) have no choice but to continue operating.

This one-day course will explore how these organizations maintain high reliability even in times of serious crisis and stability. We will share their secrets in a way that can be applied to all organizations in order to create high reliability and continued success.

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants:

  • Define the characteristics of a high reliability organization
  • Define key concepts required for high reliability, including mindfulness and expectations
  • Describe the five principles governing high reliability organizations: preoccupation with failure, resistance to simplification, sensitivity to operations, commitment to resilience, and deference to expertise
  • Audit activities at all stages to assess the business’ reliability

What is a High Reliability Organization?

This session gives students a look at what a high reliability organization (HRO) is and what high reliability organizations have in common. This session also takes a look at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster which is examined throughout the course.

Key Concepts

Once students have a grasp of what constitutes a high reliability organization this session takes it further and explores the key concepts for the fundamental principles of a high reliability organization. These concepts are discussed in depth and it is considered why they are important to these organizations. A case study allows students to apply the principles to a real-life situation.

The Anticipation Principles

The five keep principles of HROs are divided into two separate sections. The first section focuses on anticipating unexpected events and preparing for them. These principles are known as anticipation principles including: preoccupation with failure, resistance to simplification, and sensitivity to operations. These principles will be applied to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

The Containment Principles

The containment principles follow upon the anticipation principles and act upon negative events that sometimes happen regardless of anticipation and preparation. These principles recognize this and give ways to mitigate the impact of these events. The principles of commitment to resilience and deference to expertise are explored here and are applied to Deepwater Horizon.

Auditing for High Reliability

This session takes students through a look at a few types of audits of HROs. Also provided are some sample questions to help students assess the presence of each of the high reliability principles in their organizations. A case study is also considered to practice applying a basic auditing technique.

Test Driving

In this session students are presented with an in-depth case study which allows them to reflect upon all the principles and practices illustrated in this course.

Workshop Wrap-Up

At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
