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 and the actual, quantified risk exposure of the enterprise to design objective, measurable strategies to close the deficit between those risks and the collective competency necessary to manage them.
Your company's products and services depend on people more than process. We don't focus as much on acute risks but rather on isolating and defining sub-acute factors: the drivers of human behavior, professional judgment and decision making, and position-specific performance factors.
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 perceived]
These factors directly impact your team's engagement, motivation, and your risk exposure. At Functional Adventure Corporate, our philosophy is to focus on prevention of potentially negatively impactful events and poor 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 unbiased, objective and solutions-oriented.
