Lessons Learned From Experience
Matthew has experienced many lessons throughout the duration of his career, but there was one night in 2001 that ultimately changed his life and became the motivation for his life’s mission. During routine shipboard training off Marine Corps Air Station New River, NC, Matthew was the lead pilot of one of two CH-46E helicopters during training that night. Due to a ’12 second human error’ in the second aircraft, the helicopter impacted the water, killing three Marines, including Matthew’s good friend and combat air crewman.
Matthew would later learn that a similar mishap took place in a different training exercise a few years prior. Had knowledge from that experience been properly transferred after the first mishap, the 2001 training crash could have been prevented.
Time Critical Decision Making
The primary purpose of Time Critical Decision Making is to help individuals and teams better understand how great teams solve problems in a crisis, and thus reduce human error. Our emphasis is on individual and team decision making. This is not a charm school for individuals and teams; this is a program that provides a common frame of reference for evaluating and further developing skills integral in future training and job performance.
This is a program that provides a common frame of reference for evaluating and further developing skills integral to future training and job performance.
The success of an individual and even crews or teams in handling abnormal or emergency events requires coordinated efforts and the knowledge and experience of experts. Businesses today operate in complex environments and are faced with situations characterized by rapidly unfolding events, multiple plausible outcomes, high information ambiguity, time pressure, and serious consequences for error. This is part of everyday life!
Participants in the program will learn:
- Individual and Team Decision Making Skills
- How to Reduce Human Error
- Communication and Resolution Strategies
- Scenario Based Training Concepts
- And more…
Communicating Information in a Timely and Effective Manner
In order to adapt to these situations we must coordinate actions so we can gather, process, integrate, and communicate information in a timely and effective manner. Individuals must recognize their situation. Teams have to coordinate with each other, distribute and orchestrate tasks with teammates, communicate key information, and make decisions collectively. Missing any of these steps could result in misinformation or lack of integral information and lead the team to fail, or even to disaster. This causes individuals, teams and corporations to lose money, time, or even worse- cause injury or loss of life.
