(LOS ANGELES, August 29, 2017) – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Mark Paradies, President of System Improvements, the developer of the TapRooT® System, software and training for finding the real root causes of problems.

The TapRooT® System is based on advanced, proven human performance and equipment reliability technology. It is used by leading companies around the world to investigate and fix the root causes of major accidents, everyday incidents, minor near-misses, quality issues, human errors, maintenance problems, medical mistakes, productivity issues, manufacturing mistakes and environmental releases. System Improvements was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Paradies says that TapRooT® ultimately seeks to analyze human performance to see what happened when errors were made. He explains, “We start by looking at what happened first. We lay out something called a SnapCharT®, which is basically a visual way to look at what happened. People realize they didn’t really know what happened until they put it down on paper and laid it out. We can do this in paper or in software. The key is understanding what happened before you start digging into why it happened.”

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, is delighted to feature TapRooT®. He says, “Because humans are imperfect by nature, occasional errors are inevitable. But that doesn’t mean we can’t strive to make fewer errors whenever possible. That’s exactly what TapRooT® has set out to do. This innovative company seeks to find — and fix — the root causes of many problems, leading to better outcomes in all scenarios. We can’t wait to have TapRooT® on our show.”
