Accuracy and Attention to Detail

The Accuracy and Attention to Detail workshop is highly participative and aims to demonstrate why we make mistakes and what methods we can put in place to produce more accurate text and number work. It also considers the impact of errors on the individual, team and organisation, and how our personality traits influence the mistakes we make.

At the end of the workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Recognise common errors and what causes us to make them
  • Analyse personality traits which influence how we work and the mistakes we make
  • Work through techniques to produce more accurate results
