Determining Culpability

An objective method for determining culpability when things don't go as planned...

“At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.”


An essential aspect of a Just Culture...

When something goes wrong…someone makes a mistake…an incident occurs…what often determines whether the company metes out punishment for those involved?

The sequence of reaction and consequence often revolves around how likeable they are.

When consequences & punishments are levied based on who’s friends with who, there's little chance for JUSTICE, which is a fundamental element of a Just Culture.

The Culpability Decision Tree provides a systematic method for bypassing favoritism and biased judgement and OBJECTIVELY determining an individual’s culpability.
