Individuals Who Learn Improve Performance. Teams That Learn Lead Their Companies to Greatness.
Many organizations suffer from chronic execution failures because they are unable to learn from their mistakes. Individuals or small teams may learn lessons, but these lessons are rarely used in future planning or disseminated to other groups that could use the knowledge. Chronic failures never get resolved, opportunities are lost, and corporate cynicism is reinforced. Fighter Pilots have a highly institutionalized ritual for learning as a group called Debriefing. Debriefing is not a "gripe" session...it is the deadly serious process of learning the lessons that will save lives on tomorrow's mission. Debriefing is so important that it is common for a Mission Debrief to last far longer than the Mission itself. In the Afterburner Debriefing Workshop, your team will learn the power of Debriefing from real Fighter Pilots who have mastered the skill.
Forget the Academics - Your Team is Going to Learn This Stuff by DOING It.
This is not just an academic discussion! Using our "Demo-Do" methodology, your team, with the help of our Fighter Pilots, will actually Debrief a recently completed Corporate Mission...the results of a product launch, the latest quarterly sales numbers, or the results of the marketing campaign...and they'll walk away with an understanding of WHY the Mission was a success (or failure) and what are the Lessons Learned that can be applied to tomorrow's Mission.
Conquer the Corporate Cynicism AND Improve Your Team's Performance.
When you walk away from an Afterburner Debriefing Workshop, your team will have a deeper understanding of the Flawless Execution Model℠ and especially the STEALTH℠ Debrief Process. More than that, you will have Debriefed a real Mission, gained powerful Lessons Learned, and have the tools to make Debriefing part of your corporate culture.
|9:00 AM||Flawless Execution Review||Your team has seen the Flawless Execution Model℠. Now it's time to go a little deeper.|
|9:30||Threats and Resources||Your team will learn about the STEALTH℠ Debriefing Process and the techniques that will maximize its effectiveness. You will also learn about the different types of Debriefs and how to use them on the job in different situations.|
|10:00||Demo||Once your team has learned about Debriefing and watched one in action, it's time to "DO" a Debrief yourselves.|
|10:45||Tone||This is the part of the workshop where you turn concepts into action. Using a real Corporate Mission your team has recently completed, you will conduct a real STEALTHSM Debrief. With the coaching of an Afterburner facilitator, your team leader will set the tone for the Debrief, using Afterburner leadership principles.|
|11:00||Execution||Your team will answer the questions: "Did we meet our objective? Our primary objective? Our secondary objectives?" You will replay the timeline of events that occurred during the Execution of the Mission to set the stage for the in-depth analysis in the next phase of the Debrief.|
|11:30||Analyze Errors||Your team will identify each profit and loss of the Mission and the Cause of each. For each item, your team will drill down to the Root Cause and/or Recurring Root Causes behind each success or failure.|
|1:30 pm||Lessons Learned||Armed with the detailed analysis of the Mission, your team will identify the highest-value Lessons Learned from the Mission. All of these Lessons Learned will be actionable items that can directly apply to future Missions or key processes in your organization.|
|2:30||Transfer Lessons Learned||In this final segment of the workshop, your team will convert your Lessons Learned into a distributable format that can benefit the entire team in the next Planning cycle. You will also discuss how to institutionalize Debriefing throughout your team, department or division and standardize how Lessons Learned are distributed across the entire organization.|
|3:30||Wrap-Up||Concluding remarks and points to ponder.|
