Measuring What Matters Most
Sawmax is an online Simulation / Testing / Certification / Training system that uses real-life scenarios and multiple-choice questions to evaluate, certify and improve competence using targeted eLearning.
Sawmax enables you to see how candidates react to real world situations as they unfold. This allows you to test current knowledge and to identify any weaknesses and automatically direct the person to eLearning.
Sawmax uses gamification techniques to drive performance improvement throughout the organisation. Encouraging the individual to improve in a gaming experience that challenges them and maintains focus on key areas underpinning stakeholder value and security.
Sharpen the Saw
The name Sawmax® is inspired by Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” – Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw which includes learning and self-improvement. Sawmax is designed to enable individuals to manage their own learning and self-improvement based on pinpointed assessment of strengths and weaknesses in the working environment.
Improve performance and guard against potential errors and loss. How we achieve it:
Use real-world, industry-specific scenarios in testing and certification
Assess how workers think, make decisions and apply what they know
Identify competence gaps and provide eLearning to address them
Where appropriate certify to given standards
Make visible and manageable team and individual strengths and weaknesses to empower team optimisation
Monitor and report progress as improvements are made
Use in any Industry
Sawmax was originally developed to support the needs of companies who were working to reduce costs and improve safety performance. The focus of the initiative was to:
Reduce NPT (non-productive time) and improve safety performance
Identify the strengths and weaknesses of individuals and teams of personnel
Provide online training to support performance improvement
Facilitate the management of the change in demographics as the Baby Boomers retire
Create a central knowledge source for competence about personnel that can be shared among members
Sawmax is best used in high risk, high impact areas where mistakes are costly or can have significant stakeholder impact.
Companies spend billions each year on mistakes that could have been avoided had they had more competent personnel and a credible means of measuring and improving competence and certifying personnel been in place.
Performance can be significantly improved by simulating past events and challenging personnel to those situations to gauge their understanding and capabilities to avoid making similar mistakes.
The opportunities for value enhancement are very substantial.
