Incident Analysis Teams are often cobbled together and thrown into the fray with minimal consideration of the elements needed to ensure their success. Unfortunately, a haphazard approach to starting the analysis can significantly hamper the team’s efficiency and effectiveness in solving the problem. Rick Foote, co-author of IEEE Standard 1707-2015 (IEEE Recommended Practice for the Investigation of Events at Nuclear Facilities), will discuss approaches that enable Incident Analysis Teams to get off to a great start. Attendees will learn about key activities that should precede team formation, such as evidence preservation by line personnel and establishing a team charter. Rick will discuss factors organizations should consider in order to establish lean and mean teams tailored to solving the specific incident at hand. Attendees will also learn ways to get their teams off to a running start once formed, such as how to perform effective kick-off briefings, and a structured methodology for identifying initial and subsequent task assignments for team members.
