Information gathering and processing

Module 2: Information gathering and processing

This module will guide you through the process of collecting facts and perspectives related to your organization, field, and community. You will be introduced to the purpose and format of the information gathering process.

Situational awareness involves conscious recognition of all the factors and conditions which affect the safe operation of an aircraft – and by extension the successful managing of your business.

For the pilot of an aircraft, much of the information comes from the flight instruments and the navigational equipment on board.

The process of constructing an accurate mental model of the position of the aircraft is subject to a number of influences such as inattention, distraction, under-arousal, stress, boredom, fatigue, etc, etc.

This module focuses on interpreting and structuring information, defining your primary focus and your priority setting combined with situational awareness.

You will learn to develop an in-depth plan for collecting available facts about your community, your constituents, your field, and your organization in regard to inclusiveness.

Specifically, you will:

  • Decide what facts are most relevant for your organization.
  • Make a determination about the sources of information you will use.
  • Decide who will be responsible for gathering these facts.
  • Gather the facts.
