The Value of the Intangible
I recently graduated with my Mechanical Engineering Degree. I remember going through my rigorous program at Virginia Tech solving complex problems using differential equations, completing analyses with self-coded programs, and using the solutions I came up with to reinvent my design at hand. Why am I telling you this? I love numbers. I believe in mathematics. In my college years I believed any problem could be solved with some sort of analysis involving numbers, because numbers matter!
“… it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it can tell us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans.”
Our perceptions need to change. We are focusing on the wrong things. We need to realize that focusing on the intangible will inevitably affect the tangible.
Failsafe’s investigative methodology of Root Cause Analysis focuses on not only the physics of an event, but also on the untouchable and the abstract. We believe that the truest value of everything lies within the intangible.
