There are two ways you can develop the knowledge needed to improve high-risk decision making. First, you can experience events first-hand. This method can be slow and dangerous.  Or, you can experience events second-hand. This can be a much quicker and much safer way to develop knowledge.

In this episode, we will discuss how to glean the most experience from:

  1. First-hand events
  2. Second-hand events
  3. Mental rehearsals
  4. Near Miss reports
  5. Casualty reports
  6. Simulations
  7. Training
