Key Leverage Points to become a High Reliability Organization
Presented by Bahadir Inozu
8:00am - 9:30am PDT
March 31, 2018


High Reliability Organizing (HRO) is an effective way that organizations can respond to crisis, chaos, and adversity. HRO gives leadership, management, and all levels of an organization a way to process challenges and overcome them as a single unit.

HRO can help large teams adapt to potentially threatening and time-sensitive situations while they are still developing; it has literally been a lifesaver for those trapped in a chaotic environment. Following Naval Aviation, other high risk industries started implementing HRO such as nuclear power plants, civil aviation, including air traffic control, and firefighters. HRO is now being widely embraced by the US Healthcare industry.
