“Stop the symptom; solve the systematic issue.”

-James Boretti (in LinkedIn conversation with Ron Gantt, Operational Resilience, Safety, and Human Performance Professional)

Businesses are always evolving, based upon their ability to recognize business risk and adapt to it.

Solve the systematic issue that leads to undesired and unacceptable risk-taking through decision making…that’s productivity, efficiency, and profitability.
