Cause Mapping Approach
Cause Mapping is an extremely effective "systems thinking" approach to root cause analysis that significantly improves communication in group problem solving. In the Cause Mapping workshop, participants will learn that problem solving is about identifying and eliminating specific causes. The simple three-step process benefits people at all levels in an organization (executives to front-line employees) by creating a visual picture, the Cause Map, of how to prevent past problems for the purpose of improving business performance. This Cause Map is a simple, visual tool for capturing these specific causes and making the information available throughout an organization.
This workshop teaches individuals and groups how to analyze, document, communicate and solve problems effectively.
The Cause Mapping process is based on pure cause and effect analysis and can be applied to any type of problem. Some examples include:
- Equipment failures
- People issues
- Production losses
- Safety incidents
- Medical errors
- Work process deficiencies
- Customer service problems
Each attendee will receive:
Each attendee will receive the Cause Mapping I - Effective Root Cause Analysis workbook containing all of the Cause Mapping concepts, steps, examples and exercises that are covered in the two-day workshop. All attendees will also receive the electronic Microsoft Excel Cause Mapping templates.
