Threat and Error Management – made playful
This group exercise has been designed around Threat and Error Management but can easily be linked to many other CRM and Human Factors topics. Threat and Error Management training in Crew Resource Management is an important part of flight safety. This explains why EASA has now introduced TEM as a separate topic in Crew Resource Management. One part of Threat and Error Management is the importance of recognising threats and errors. Meanwhile Threat and Error Management is to a large extent about the managing part of the concept. Strategics is a group exercise which helps CRM trainers approach the Threat and Error Management concept i a fun, interactive way. It also underlines the importance of the management part of TEM.
The group exercise is very versatile as it accommodates groups from 2-20 participants. For groups that exceed 20 persons 2 game boards can be used at the same time.
Clearly illustrating the accumulative exacerbation of avoiding managing threats and errors, the group exercise is designed specifically to help deepen students’ understanding and acceptance of the need to consciously and continuously manage threats and errors. It strengthens the perception of the importance of good cooperation as well as structured decision making processes and effective time management. It can be linked to various decision making models such as DODAR, FORDEC or DECIDE.
