    Share Solutions for Identifying Problems And Improving Processes

    "When mistakes are made, we have a very counterproductive habit of blaming someone for a problem and thinking that retraining them in the same activity will make the problem go away and a lot of the time, the issue simply resurfaces. Moreover, it doesn't stop the next person getting it wrong either"

It is all about how we balance reliability with reducing costs and controlling risk. Easy to say, but the challenging part is actually achieving such  sweet-spot."
