Profile: John Sherban has over 35 years of global experience involving a wide range of petrochemical and electrical utility business activities. Whilst employed by BP and Shell in Canada, and later as International Engineering Staff with Shell in the Middle East, Europe, and West Africa, John held a number of increasingly senior technical and leadership roles. He has worked and travelled extensively and appreciates the importance of professionalism, cultural understanding, impeccable objectivity, and thoroughness in all his endeavours. John’s work mainly focuses on helping large organisations understand and improve their organisational effectiveness, including their management of risks, through the proper application of various methods important to risk management. These include Tripod BETA incident analysis, BowTieXP proactive risk assessment, and the Hearts and Minds performance improvement tools. Barrier-thinking is central to his approach. Utilising his extensive engineering training and experience, John is able to integrate highly technical Newtonian cause and effect relationships with more diverse probabilistic human performance factors and organisational influences that shape these. John’s overriding philosophy is that understanding and maturing an effective organisational culture is the route to improved overall business performance.
