“People not procedures are your organisation’s best defence”
The core function of Kura Human Factors is to create an environment that provides a clearer understanding of the risks carried within organisations. This awareness creates a just culture where risk-based decisions are not only widely understood, but solutions contributed to by everyone.
Our approach, born from years of key aviation experience, harvests and merges numerous ‘safety intelligence’ sources creating a single, cross-capability risk picture to cover all aspects of any organisation.
As system interdependabilty increases, goals conflict, people and technology intertwine, even routine work becomes more challenging and all too often ‘management by fire-fighting’ becomes the norm. Integrating Human Factors into everyday practices creates efficiencies that improve productivity and competitiveness, whilst generating agility to increase resilience.
In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, there is a need for both technology-orientated people but also people-orientated technology. Kura facilitates the building of trust between people and processes that bridges the gap between work as imagined versus work as done.
The effective understanding and employment of Human Factors reduces errors and de-risks organisations. This creates a cycle of continuous improvement permitting strategic goals and vision to be met.
