Responsibility rather than regret

Today’s workshop was a real eye opener in a lot of ways for me. Firstly, I have always been bothered about my actions and how they would affect my future and the ones around me. Doesn’t matter if it’s something related to the future of a company or me personally I have always been quite observant of my present due to its effect on the future. Of course to most people this might be something resembling paranoia to me its always been about being logical and careful about the decisions you make as that will define you for the rest of your life.

However, one thing I never considered before today’s workshop was that I can be as observant and careful as I can be but when working in a team its not just me who needs to be observant. The case of the Workers dying due to nitrogen suffocation, the blast in the chemical factory, the team repairing the Australian helicopter they all have one thing in common which stood out beyond everything else for me.

The lack of a knowledge sharing system. As Mr.Roberts explained in 4 letter words. SoPK!

We are almost done with MBE and so far all the theories and management styles I have come across do not mention how faults can be taken out of a system. That is except for the SoPK by Deming. His ideal of making the whole system interact with one another is what could have made all those sad events avoidable.

I am but only a part of a system and I do not have the strength or the capability to manage a whole system perfectly on my shoulders and so events such as the ones discussed today are likely to occur.

HOWEVER, give me a team where there is a sharing of experience and knowledge from top to bottom and I will have a team who can manage the system with me making it highly unlikely for such events to ever occur again.
