Improve your operational risk and human capital management
get serious about managing the people on your team
The high-stakes, high-accountability world of expedition delivery allows no margin for error. When systems fail in the wilderness or on the road, the results can be fatal. Therefore, competent adventure-based organizations provide in-depth training to combat one primary key variable: human error.
At Functional Adventure Corporate, our unique approach drills down to the core competencies of your human capital -- that is, any employees, vendors or contractors whose work is tied to the success of your company.
Your company's products and services depend on people more than process. That's why we don't focus as much on what we call "acute risks" (i.e. the rope breaks or a bear attacks) but rather on the "sub-acute" factors we can control: the drivers of human behavior, professional judgment and decision making.
why our approach works
Expeditions are about managing people under stress just as much as sophisticated logistics and teaching core skills. The root causes for poor decision-making in the field are the same for the corporate environment:
Trying to please others
Trying to adhere to a schedule [or other assumed expectation]
Peer/supervisory pressure [real or assumed]
These factors directly impact your team's productivity and quality of work. At Functional Adventure Corporate, our philosophy is to focus on prevention of potentially negatively impactful events and staff culture. The vast majority of negatively impactful events in the workplace are preventable with early recognition and mitigation of key sub-acute root causal factors. Our approach is objective and solutions-oriented.
