Project Description

The Root Cause Analysis technique is a solid stage procedure that provides an innovative way of thinking and goes far beyond the traditional  problem solving processes.

It assists the creation of a common reality, using input from all stakeholders to produce an evidence-based understanding of the problem and ensures your solutions address proven causes and prevents recurrence. It makes problem solving easy and gives those who have been trained the skills to solve real world problems faster, more efficiently and effectively at any time.

Besides the traditional cause and effect diagram and logic trees, this course will enhance understanding in Apollo Charting Method which is about the most modern way to perform RCA

Why attend

This intensive course will discuss an overview to effective problem solving and root cause analysis using all RCA tools available. This is a perfect first course in effective problem solving for anyone and a required course for anyone who participates in a Root Cause Analysis. The participant will learn how to apply RCA to both simple systems and complex groups of systems.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Perform RCA successfully!

  • Analyze the issues by identifying the right failure in each step.

  • Identify effective solutions to event-based problems

  • Prepare the final RCA report

  • Effectively communicate RCA findings

  • Learn root cause analysis. The delegates will work several instructor-led exercises that build upon each other to learn how to identify causes and to recognize the difference between actions and conditions.

  • Be exposed to a new way of thinking about a problem and learn a step by step method to solve any problem the work place can present.

Who should attend

This course is intended for those whose responsibilities require them to solve organizational problems on their own and individuals with the responsibility for solving organizational problems by leading teams of people. This course is especially recommended for, but not limited to, EH&S, reliability, quality and manufacturing professionals and technicians.
