The Art of the SBAR

The Art (literally) of the SBAR

In ‘The Art of the SBAR’ I share the Situation Background Assessment Recommendation (SBAR = “ess-bar”) to discuss issues with leaders. The SBAR can be documented in MS Word, PowerPoint or other tools. I prefer the one page PowerPoint table version. Key is to deliver the SBAR in a “short and sweet” format.

SBAR Guidance:

You may use other tools to queue up decisions or to discuss resolution of issues, but I recommend giving the SBAR a try the next time you run into issues on your project or even to present an after action report (AAR) in short format.

Stay safe, wash your hands and Godspeed,
