Root cause analysis is a combination of the art and science used to find the underlying reasons for a given effect. One of the most widely used root cause analysis tools is the 5 Whys. It is a simple, effective method of problem solving that can help teams identify and eliminate the root cause of a problem.
This short module provides an overview of root cause analysis and provides a close look at the 5 Whys tool. It addresses some of its potential pitfalls, and gives instruction on how to use the tool.
This class on root cause analysis and the 5 whys provides Lean trainers the materials to instruct their teams on how to permanently solve a problem by getting to its root cause rather than working on its symptoms.
As part of our Lean training system, this class may be expanded with our student guide and Lean forms. It also has the consistent look and feel of our full line of training materials to provide a seamless message to your teams.
