Making it happen: from research to practice

Erik Hollnagel, Jeffrey Braithwaite

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The noble purpose of research is to consolidate the knowledge – the collection of theories, models, hypotheses, experiences and assumptions – that constitutes the basis for how we interact with the world around us. This knowledge determines what we pay attention to, what we look for, how we make sense of what we see and what we do to make sure that our actions will have the intended outcomes. This purpose applies for research in the established sciences as well as for research in fields that may be on their way to become sciences, such as resilient health care (RHC).
