Spear SJ. Harv Bus Rev. September 2005;83:78-91.
This commentary provides a broad overview of the issues facing health care systems in their efforts to promote quality and safety. The author discusses pervasive cultural barriers and process limitations that contribute to errors, while providing a series of anecdotes to demonstrate how easy and frequent these events can occur. Approaches for improvement that draw from the experiences of non-health care organizations, such as Toyota, are included. The strength of the commentary lies in the compelling stories shared and the perspectives offered to foster change.

March JG, Sproull LS, Tamuz M. Org Sci. 1991;2:1-13.
Organizations learn from experience. However, learning from rare events is challenging because experience is limited. The authors cite examples of rare events and outline the strategies that organizations use to learn from these. The authors review two strategies for learning from rare events: one that focuses on experiencing the event more richly and another that attempts to simulate the experience. The authors assess the reliability and validity of these approaches.
