The new edition of Crew Resource Management continues to focus on CRM in the cockpit, but also emphasizes that the concepts and training applications provide generic guidance and lessons learned for a wide variety of "crews" in the aviation system as well as in the complex and high-risk operations of many non-aviation settings. Long considered the "bible" in this field, much of the basic style and structure of the previous edition of Crew Resource Management is retained in the new edition. Textbooks are often heavily supplemented with or replaced entirely by course packs in advanced courses in the aviation field, as it is essential to provide students with cutting edge information from academic researchers, government agencies (FAA), pilot associations, and technology (Boeing, ALION). This edited textbook offers ideal coverage with first-hand information from each of these perspectives. Case examples, which are particularly important given the dangers inherent in real world aviation scenarios, are liberally supplied. An image collection and test bank make this the only text on the market with ancillary support. New material includes: international and cultural aspects of CRM; design and implementation of Line-Oriented Flight Training (LOFT); airline applications beyond the cockpit; spaceflight resource management; non-aviation applications; AQP; LOSA; and special issues pertaining to low-cost airline carriers. The second edition editors offer essential breath of experience in aviation human factors from multiple perspectives (academia, government, and private enterprise) and the contributors have all been chosen as experts in their fields who represent the diversity of the research of activities and organisational experience of CRM. The only CRM text on the market offering an up-to-date synthesis of primary source material New edition thoroughly updated and revised to include major new findings, complete with discussion of the international and cultural aspects of CRM, the design and implementation of LOFT Instructor website with testbank and image collection Liberal use of case examples

This edited volume applies the excellent work done in Crew Resource Management (CRM) in the aviation industry to training teams in other organizations. CRM is not only a design for training, but it also has been evaluated over time and shown great success. This lesson should be transferred to other nonaviation settings, and this book was written with that goal in mind. This book has two purposes. First, it provides those interested in designing and delivering resource management training with useful and practical information containing the latest thinking and guidance available. Second, it launches CRM training as a viable intervention that can be used to enhance teamwork and organizational effectiveness, as well as minimize human error in a wide variety of industries and organizations. Written from experts in the field of training, this volume is organized into four sections that: *address the foundation of resource management training; *focus on the tools needed for design and delivery of resource management training; *apply resource management training to several industries and domains (i.e., medical, naval, airlines); and *look at the global issues, such as culture of organizations, national issues, and error in training.

In diesem Buch über Fehlermanagement demonstriert der Autor auf faszinierende Weise, wie wichtig es ist, aus Fehlern zu lernen und beschreibt praxisnah, wie dieses Konzept im Unternehmensumfeld eingesetzt werden kann. Anhand konkreter Beispiele aus der zivilen und militärischen Luftfahrt schildert er eindrucksvoll, wie dort nach und nach ein einschlägiges Fehlermanagement, nämlich das Crew Resource Management entwickelt wurde. Er beschreibt die Widerstände, die auf dem Weg dahin überwunden werden mussten, und die langsame, aber letztlich erfolgreiche Generierung jener sachlichen, fehlerdiagnostischen Kultur, die heute jedes moderne Unternehmen braucht. Ich irre, also bin ich, schrieb Augustinus, und Benjamin Franklin war der Meinung, die Geschichte der menschlichen Irrtümer sei interessanter als diejenige ihrer Erfindungen; doch wenn wir uns irren und Fehler machen, ärgern wir uns und fühlen uns peinlich berührt. Am unangenehmsten sind uns die Fehler, die uns geschäftlich unterlaufen, denn auf dieser Ebene ist das Publikum in der Regel größer als im privaten Kreis. Gerade deshalb ist dieses Buch ein wichtiger Wegweiser und liefert ein hervorragendes Konzept bei der Umsetzung eines erfolgreichen Fehlermanagements.
