Throughout our research exploring non-technical skills we have sought to take a systems approach – considering the contextual factors that might influence performance of these skills in practice. This has resulted in the accumulation of a body of knowledge regarding potential factors that might limit, or support, the use of non-technical skills across a range of industries. Some of these factors, such as fatigue and stress, are seen across multiple industries, other factors such as competitiveness and client actions, have been reported in specific industries thus far. Below you can view papers and other materials discussing these factors in the research conducted to date.
