Let Me Tell You a Reliability Story
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
We tell and listen to stories all the time. Anecdotes, encounters, best practices, near misses, memories, etc. We also influence the way we interpret the world around us via the stories we tell ourselves. Plus, we often work to alter the stories others have in their head, as we work to improve reliability.
Stories are a powerful way to convey information in a memorable manner. People remember stories (maybe not the details, yet the gist or point) whereas they quickly forget a table of facts. So, how do you go about telling a memorable story about a Weibull plot of field data? Or, a mean cumulative plot of a repairable system?
Let’s explore the practice of storytelling when in the role of a reliability engineer or manager. Plus, let’s examine a few methods to become an impactful storyteller.
