David Marx is CEO of Outcome Engenuity, a Dallas-based risk management firm. David has a BS in Mechanical Systems Engineering (1985) and Juris Doctor in Law(1997). David’s firm currently spends the majority of its effort helping high-consequence industries develop values-supportive practices and culture. David began his career as a Boeing aircraft design engineer. In his final years at Boeing, David organized a human factors and safety group which won the International Federation of Airworthiness’s Whittle Award for its development of a human error investigation process used today by airlines around the world. In 1997, David launched a research and consulting practice focusing on the management of human error through the integration of systems engineering, human factors, and the law. David has served as an advisor to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Human Factors Research Program and to the NASA Space Shuttle Program. David was the principal consultant to NASA in development of their major mishap investigation process as well as leading an outside team to benchmark space shuttle processing quality. David has developed risk modeling methods, including an approach to socio-technical probabilistic risk assessment (ST-PRA), which have been used to model risk in aviation, space, rail, and healthcare. In the healthcare sector, David has been working to help healthcare institutions and regulatory agencies reduce the risk of iatrogenic patient harm. In the area of system design, David’ ST-PRA process has been used to model and mitigate risks from wrong site surgeries to medication errors, some of that work being done under Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality grants. In the area of safety culture, David authored “Patient Safety and the ‘Just Culture’: A Primer for Healthcare Executives” for the National Institutes of Health. David is on the Board of Governors of the National Patient Safety Foundation, where he contributes to the national dialogue around the prevention of medical mistakes. Widely seen as the father of “Just Culture,” David’s firm administers the Just Culture Community, a resource for organizations across industries all striving to create accountable, safety-supportive cultures. David’s book, Whack-a-Mole: The Price We Pay for Expecting Perfection, was released in September of 2009. The book offers insights into our culture’s mis-management of human fallibility. David believes strongly, and shows through his work, that we as a society can indeed produce better safety outcomes.
