Human Performance Improvement (HPI) for Engineers and Knowledge Workers

Course duration:

1 day (8 hours of instruction)

Price:

$385

Course Summary:

This course is designed to provide tools to reduce errors made by engineers and knowledge workers (i.e. people who touch the “paper” part of companies). These tools are different in form and application from tools used by front line workers and their supervisors, who perform physical work in companies. The emphasis is on early detection of errors, especially in design. Late detection of design errors usually results in self revealing events years later that are dangerous to people, and potentially financially disastrous to companies. The course creates an understanding of the general nature of the unique personality profiles of engineers and knowledge workers and why they can fail to recognize errors in their work.
