Ripple Effect: Consequences to the System
Show Notes

Organizations tend to react really quickly when something goes wrong in their systems. They jump to find a solution without taking the time to fully understand how the system works. This can lead to too many rules and regulations in the work environment, making things overly complicated.

Dr. Jason Starke shares interesting examples of how this kind of knee-jerk reaction caused even more problems in flight operations. It's important to pay attention and learn from these mistakes. By actively listening and thinking about these examples, we can gain valuable insights and avoid making the same errors. This will help create a more sustainable and efficient work environment for everyone involved.
