Developing Leading Indicators: It Can Be Done!
All organizations want to demonstrate to various stakeholders that proactive safety management efforts have positive results. Using metrics resulting from leading indicators will point you in the direction of this success. However, safety professionals have traditionally relied upon lagging indicators produced after the fact to measure the success of their safety programs. The perception of the coveted leading indicators for forecasting or predicting the success of investments in safety seems as easy as winning the lottery. It's a struggle! Miles Ewing, Principal of Deloitte Consulting has an approach that will stand up to the challenge.
Utilizing the science and art of developing leading indicators, Mr. Ewing has applied both to develop an approach to help identify high-quality predictive information. He will take you through this process resulting in a framework for you to use in, first, developing generic leading indicators to learn the process. Then he will then guide you through tailoring these leading indicators for safety to produce the metrics that can give you a more accurate forecast for your programs.

Performance Measurement: Taking Control of What Lies Ahead
With the abundance of metrics from high-quality leading indicators you will learn at this symposium, you will develop the ability to create meaningful insight into what was previously the unexpected. This knowledge can help you develop programs that can reduce the probabilities of potential safety incidents, anticipate more reliable outcomes, demonstrate the value of your safety system initiatives, and execute a performance measurement tracking system that can take your safety efforts to the next level.
Dr. Harold S. Resnick, recognized authority and innovator in organizational transformation will present a process for using the safety knowledge you capture through performance measurement tools to make that data work to improve safety in your organization.
