Anchor Risk Group (ARG) believes we are an important partner in helping our clients achieve success in their business. In our experience, we have learned first hand that “one size does not fit all.” It may start with a simple conversation or cup of coffee where our risk management professionals diligently ensure that we meet the unique and specific needs of each client. That requires more than just collecting information on a stack of forms - we make the effort and take the time to learn your business so that we can accurately portray and adequately address your needs.
ARG's goal is to help clients achieve Organizational Precision, where High Performance and High Reliability are balanced and processes are focused to meet organizational objectives. This requires dedicated efforts to create and foster high-performance teams within the organization, supported with processes and structure to develop the necessary adaptability, flexibility, and resilience to meet dynamic and emergent needs.
ARG approaches each new client with the intent to forge a lasting partnership – our processes are client-centered and leveraging our military and business experience, we work very hard to tailor our processes and services to achieve end-state objectives.
ARG uses a proprietary, trademark pending process called mBED (- mission planning, Brief, Execution, & Debrief - during training courses to ensure long-term knowledge retention.
Over the past decade, a great deal of research has identified several key ingredients of successful adult learning. The mBED process utilizes principles of the AGES Model - Attention, Generation, Emotion, & Spacing - to allow operators learn quickly and retain the information for longer durations.
ARG uses the mBED process for EVERY training evolution, regardless if it is simple or complex. During a typical 12-day course, each student may be personally responsible for each phase of the mBED process at least 10 or 15 times, vice only once during a typical FTX. Students witness the mBED process 50 to 60 times during a 12-day course.
ARG instructors have noticed greater proficiency during complex FTXs because students were able to implement all of the facets of the AGES Model and retain the information.
Thorough debriefs allow students to understand the ‘why.’ We always incorporate contingencies into an FTX and have found that students utilize critical thinking gained from the repetitive mBED process to quickly develop and implement a response to unplanned events.
Routinely applying the mBED process to any training activity has shown that students gain a greater understanding of tactics and develop the skills for conducting critical thinking and decision making in stressful environments.
