I am an "event learning" consultant and practitioner and have been since 1974.
When something goes "wrong" -- an injury, explosion, loss of revenue, etc. high hazard industries are required to learn from them.
Almost all events of these sorts can be traced to people who did something "wrong," IN RETROSPECT. That is, I'm NOT talking about intentional harm, or morally or ethically "wrong" here. I AM talking about, in retrospect, "I should not have flown my drone in those high wind conditions because it ended up crashing my drone."
I'm trying to use "retrospection" to get people to realize what they DID, and then get them to acknowledge that whatever they did was "wrong." "I flew my drone in high wind conditions, and in retrospect I acknowledge this was wrong."
There are parts of our behavior that are"wrong" in the sense that they will either harm us or other people -- even though we are not aware of them at the time.
But in using the word "wrong," I am getting a lot of push-back these days from people thinking "it's a finger pointing exercise." Far from that, we're asking individual people to look at themselves as part of an incident and SELF-ADMIT what they did that contributed to an incident.
I need to know the kinds of things I do that are "wrong," so that I can change those kinds of things.
So again, can anyone thing of a better word to use instead of:
Who did what WRONG? A word that does not imply morally or ethically "bad?"
