We help senior business leaders in high hazard industries to achieve predictable and safe operational performance.
Brady Heywood provides expert advice to boards and senior business leaders on how their organisations can move towards higher reliability. Organisational reliability helps companies consistently achieve predictable and safe operational performance and avoid catastrophic failure.
Organisations with this capability are often referred to as High Reliability Organisations (HROs). The theory and practice of HROs has been developed over the past 35 years, and it has been successfully implemented in many high hazard industries. At their core, HROs are learning organisations that anticipate and manage the unexpected events that occur in sociotechnical systems. HROs enjoy a range of positive outcomes that include long periods of time without catastrophic failure.
We help business leaders implement the principles of HROs in their organisation. We take a systems thinking approach, we apply a range of techniques in data analytics and AI, and we spend time with your people, from the boardroom to the frontline. Through this, we better understand how your business functions in real life, in the process identifying the cultural drivers, barriers to and enablers of organisational change.
We collaborate with you to weave this intelligence into practical guidance that produces organisational learning, resilience and high performance.
