Our approach

The front end of project planning is where some of the most critical decisions are made. This performance support will help you understand how these decisions impact project delivery and occupational safety. The diagram below shows the proactive and reactive elements of management decision-making covered in ARMSA performance support sprints.

Front-end decision-making components

  • Organisational culture
  • Commercial/contract framework
  • Organisational precursors
  • Work planning decisions
  • Emergent operations failure

Late-stage decision-making components

  • Hazard observation
  • Incidents
  • Minor accident
  • Major accident
  • Fatality

Performance support aims

How often are your decisions rushed and constrained by time or cost or because you didn’t have anyone to bounce your ideas off? 

Performance support helps you do things right, right from the start. Learn to understand the consequences of your decisions and make choices that result in safer, more effective, and more efficient outcomes.

Our performance support solutions are constructed around the cycle:

  • Leadership
  • Plan
  • Do
  • Check 
  • Act

Decision-making content

The performance support portal comprises circa 40 short video sprints supported by written transcripts. Each video can be viewed in any order and as many times as you like.
