"Simon is a passionate dedicated individual motivated to share the potential of the STAMP approach to the greater world. In explaining the fundamentals of control theory applied to safety as well as addressing factors beyond the obvious, he helps to broaden people’s traditional approaches to accident investigation of finding blame. His calm demeanor helps participants wrestle with the concepts without feeling stupid."
"Systems-safety can be a fairly dry topic, whereas Simon's knowledge and smooth delivery made for a very engaging and interactive session. Furthermore, by employing an actual accident scenario, the benefits of the contemporary CAST investigation method were given proper context. Thank-you Simon for an excellent introduction to an important advance in systems-safety."
"On August 8th, I participated in the online webinar on CAST/STAMP accident analysis, which was hosted by Simon Whitely. From the first minutes of the webinar, I was impressed by the time he took to welcome the participants. After a brief online survey to understand the backgrounds and level of knowledge of the participants, Simon took the time to explain the principles of STAMP / CAST and how the analysis approach works. Using the simple analogy of driving a car made understanding the basics of STAMP much easier. Simon then went to explain how the Ueberlingen mid-air collision took place, and how this could be translated into an analysis model in stamp. During the webinar there was plenty of room for discussion, and Simon took the time to field questions, but also to challenge the participants to think about what aspects of the systems could have contributed to the collision. I came away from the webinar with a better overview of STAMP/CAST and how this could help me in my current (design) project. I would highly recommend that if you would like to know more about STAMP/CAST, that Simon’s webinar is a great place to start!"
"Simon’s CAST workshop on the Überlingen collision was really well presented, to a high degree of professionalism and rich in detail. I found his introduction to STAMP and the framing of the methods informative and full of valuable practical tips. He is also a skilled facilitator and creates a positive, learning environment where you feel free to ask any question. Simon’s workshops are a must for anyone who applies or is keen to apply system engineering methods."
