inside strategy framework

Strategy is a plan to achieve success. Most safety efforts are plans to fail less (ie lower incident rates). Failing less is not a strategy. Safety efforts are goals rather than plans to achieve the goals. Goals are also not strategies. Zero accidents, zero harm, or numeric goals for lagging indicators may drive improvement but also might drive cheating or pencil whipping. In either case, they are not strategies. When organizations ask themselves the right questions, they often find they have a series of activities and programs rather than a true strategy. You can change that.
