SWANZEY, N.H., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Practicing Perfection Institute, Inc. (PPI), the world's leading provider of next-level human error reduction training, today announced the establishment of a key partner organization - Practicing Perfection Canada, Ltd. (PPI Canada). PPI Canada will offer the full spectrum of Practicing Perfection® human error reduction and human performance enhancement services to Canadian organizations and their affiliates.
"The full operation of PPI Canada is a major opportunity for Canadian organizations," stated Tim Autrey, CEO of PPI. "Next-level human error reduction and human performance enhancement is now available for Canadian companies by a Canadian company. This is a major step toward achievement of the PPI global vision- Event-free, world-wide, one life at a time."
PPI Canada, headquartered in Whitby Ontario, is headed by Lee Lane and Corrina Donaldson. It provides Practicing Perfection® human error reduction training, processes, and services for all sectors.
Lee Lane, formerly the Nuclear Oversight Manager for Operations and Maintenance for Ontario Power Generation (OPG), as well as (most recently) the Manager of Fleet Operations Training for the entire OPG nuclear fleet, has taken the helm as Director of Operations for PPI Canada.
"Although Canadian industries have made significant steps forward in technology and process improvement," stated Mr. Lane, "there remains tremendous untapped potential in our people, across all sectors. Few organizations have gone down the path of truly engaging their work force and optimizing the capability of their staff members. People generally come to work wanting to do a good job, but oftentimes the workplace limits their ability to provide maximum contribution. The Practicing Perfection® methodologies and practical tools have proven their effectiveness in other areas of the world, and fit naturally with our Canadian culture. Thus, Canadian organizations now have a unique opportunity to make significant gains in error reduction, worker engagement, and organizational effectiveness in a short period of time, demonstrating continuing excellence and leadership in a global economy."
From her years of experience in the commercial nuclear power generation and aviation industries, as well as through her experience with PPI (USA), Ms. Donaldson brings a wealth of experience in human error reduction and human performance enhancement to Canadian organizations (particularly at the 'front line' level).
"I am excited to bring these processes to Canada," offered Ms. Donaldson. "I have had the opportunity to see first-hand the positive impact that this training has had on front line workers and their supervisors. In today's competitive market place, enterprises must seamlessly improve human performance and communication at all levels. It is inspiring to be able to bring that competitive edge to Canadian organizations."
"Our world is in a time of substantial challenge where organizations need members who will lead, rather than those who simply 'manage' or blindly follow," added Tim Autrey. "In all industries across all sectors, the organizations that will thrive into the future are those whose enlightened leaders take action to align culture, value, and principles throughout their organizations. Practicing Perfection® directly facilitates this next-level approach to human performance."
In addition to working directly within client organizations, PPI Canada will also offer a limited number of public training sessions. The first public offering by PPI Canada will be a Certification Program, to be conducted in the Toronto area from October 3rd to 7th, 2011.
Practicing Perfection® Certification is a "train-the-trainer" course, which provides participants with in-depth understanding of how to implement the Practicing Perfection® approach. This first session in Canada will be personally taught by Tim Autrey, CEO of PPI (USA). Those who successfully complete the Certification Program will be awarded the professional designation of PPC by the Practicing Perfection Institute, Inc. Information / registration for the October Certification Program is available on the PPI Canada website.
