Implementation of “What-, How- and Why-Learning” in Offshore Drilling Planning
The paper presents the theoretical background for, and implementation of “What, How, and Why Learning” in Offshore Drilling Planning. These principles were derived from a model of company socialization of newcomers, and applied to improve safety and efficiency. Besides enhanced structure and information richness in the program, the new planning model also utilized more hands-on offshore knowledge-in-action than traditionally. Concurrent to the implementation of the re-designed program there were observed significantly improved drilling rates and reduced injury rates.
