Root cause analysis is the causal or contributing factors that, if corrected, would prevent recurrence of the identified problem
Having worked in the quality organization for over 20 years, the developers of this course have continually run into corrective actions that fall short of root cause. The concepts of root cause analysis seem simple, but applying them in every aspect of your company is difficult.
"If only our employees understood why getting to root cause is so important, and how it will benefit us in the long run!"
"Why do we keep seeing the same problems come back and bite us two months later!"
Training your company has just become easier! With this course you will be able to train anyone in your company on the proper techniques for achieving proper resolution of any type of problem, whether it be a transactional process, manufacturing issue, medical procedure, or personnel issue.
How long would it take you to develop your own course? Hours? Weeks? Unless you can develop a similar course in less than an hour, this course will pay for itself at least ten times over!
The course is yours to keep. Feel free to edit, change or modify however you want, or don't change a thing and teach directly from our material. There are a total of 56 slides, so plan on a 3-4 hour class.
Don't spend thousands of dollars hiring a consultant to come in and speak in general terms. Use your knowledge of your company's major problems to elaborate on the material we have put together. Unless you can show how these concepts relate to actual issues that your employees deal with, you will have a hard time making much of an improvement in the way problems are resolved.
