Many organizations are unable to diagnose the true causes of incidents, meaning any remedial actions are likely to fail and incidents reoccur. Yet the skills to accurately analyze and identify the true causes of incidents or behaviors are easy to learn and practice. The Root Cause Analysis Workshop will teach you methodologies and tools to do this.
The workshop begins with a self-assessment of current problem-solving processes and the results are leveraged throughout. We introduce and go through a 7-step problem solving process. Several real-life case studies are reviewed and common brainstorming methods such as Cause and Effect (Fishbone), 5-Why and Affinity diagramming are practiced through use of group exercises and worksheets.
The workshop concludes with a discussion and exercises related to the long-term effectiveness and sustainability of corrective actions related to incidents. Participants will be able to start practicing immediately.
