How Detailed Should a Root Cause Analysis Be?

August 6 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

Because problems in your organization are different severities, different problems need to be worked at different levels.

This webinar will explain how your investigations can begin simply, then expand, as needed, into a more complete explanation to reveal a variety of different solution options.

How Detailed Should a Root Cause Analysis Be?

September 17 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

Do you want to see the forest or the trees? One of the questions we get often is, “How much detail is enough for my root cause analysis?” If there’s not enough detail, it’s easy to miss important elements within the incident. With too much detail, the investigation will get bogged down with trivial issues - wasting time and frustrating those involved.
Because problems in your organization are different severities, different problems need to be worked at different levels. If your company has a one size fits all approach, you will under analyze some problems and overanalyze others. This webinar will explain how your investigations can begin simply, then expand, as needed, into a more complete explanation to reveal a variety of different solution options.

Using the Process Map to Lead a More Effective RCA Investigation

September 24 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CDT

High-reliability organizations (HRO) rely on highly reliable work processes. When a problem occurs, your investigation reveals opportunities to improve work processes. Unfortunately, many investigations fall short of this important connection with a simple explanation like “procedure needs improvement.” This explanation is NOT specific or effective at revealing actionable solutions to reduce risk. This webinar will show you how an effective investigation must focus on breakdowns in your work processes and how to use the process map as an effective tool to drive this critical discussion.

Forget Human Error. Focus on this instead…

November 19 at 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM CST

We are all human and therefore must acknowledge that as humans, we are prone to making mistakes. Labeling a problem simply as a case of “Human Error” is self-evident and shortsighted. Most concerning is that it misleads you from the ultimate purpose of your investigation. Instead, we are stuck with generic action items such as "Don't mess up," "Be more careful," or "Follow the procedure" that do little to reduce risk. If you have seen any of these as an output from an investigation then you are all too familiar with this shortcoming.
