Our most popular workshop is two days in length and is our foundational Cause Mapping course. The Cause Mapping workshop provides enough time to deliver content, provide examples, and work through exercises — both individual and group — to practice the skills and tools.
When scheduled onsite, Day 1 focuses on the fundamental principles and concepts of the Cause Mapping approach reinforced with examples and exercises. Day 2 of the workshop begins to show how the approach applies to real world organization-specific problems. The final exercise of the day is applying the Cause Mapping method on organization-specific problems identified by workshop attendees. The workshop provides the ideal blend of theory & principles, examples & exercises, and organization-specific application.
Our Cause Mapping workshops will benefit anyone who wants to improve their problem-solving and problem communication skills. These skills are essential regardless of your industry or role within your organization.
All of our workshops cover the fundamentals of effective problem solving and then show you how to expand this process expand based on the complexity of the problems you work.
The Cause Mapping Workshop is our signature workshop designed with the perfect blend of instruction and exercises. Onsite workshops are customized to your organization so that your attendees will see exactly how this method can be used to solve problems in your organization.
The severity of a problem should dictate the level of analysis. For high-risk problems, a more detailed analysis will reveal a larger set of solutions across multiple work processes. More solutions = greater risk reduction.
This workshop helped me understand that cause mapping is a powerful problem-solving tool. It enables a team to clearly communicate how a problem occurred and allows for better identification of where effective corrective action can be incorporated.

The workshop was awesome. The subject matter was way outside my current responsibilities, which I knew going in, but I was able to follow along and am still talking about what I learned. It was fantastic!

This workshop was a great use of my time. Even after going into multiple cause mapping sessions before, attending this workshop got me to really understand the ideology behind the process. I definitely would feel comfortable facilitating my own cause map now.

The Cause Mapping workshop is by far the best workshop I have ever been enrolled in. The subject matter is so practical and will have a HUGE impact on my ability to lead a Root Cause Analysis event for my company. Thanks to ThinkReliability for making us better!
