Problem Solving with Root Cause Analysis


Problem Solving with Root Cause Analysis

(in-person program held in Williamsport, PA)

What is Root Cause Analysis?

When you pull weeds out of your yard or garden, what happens when you don’t get the roots? The weeds grow back. Likewise, when we solve a problem only at a symptom level, not at the root, the problem keeps coming back. Root Cause Analysis is a method to properly identify, define, analyze, and solve a problem at its root.
