Description

From the text ... 'Simplistically, a High Reliability Organization (HRO) is one that consistently produces the results in a dynamic, often unpredictable environment in which the consequences of errors are catastrophic. Accordingly, the error rate of an HRO is substantially lower that other businesses in the same field.'
