In last week’s Facebook Live discussion with Benna Dorch and Dave Janney, we learned about corrective actions. No investigation is complete without corrective actions. Often, companies begin implementing corrective actions before they find root causes, getting the cart before the horse. If a corrective action doesn’t actually fix a root cause, what good is it? Hear and adhere to what Dave and Benna are underscoring and remember to reach out to TapRooT® so we can help you in your investigations and corrective actions.

Why Use the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Method for Quality?

May 21st, 2018 by

If you missed the Quality Problem-Solving session on Facebook Live with TapRooT® professionals Benna Dortch and Chris Vallee, here is another opportunity to get in on the discussion.

Why use the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Method for Quality from TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis on Vimeo.

Chris has brought our clients a keener understanding of “quality” with his expertise. Here is a sample:

We can all remember some type of major product recall that affected us in the past (tires, brakes, medicine, etc.) or recalls that may be impacting us today (air bags). These recalls all have a major theme—a company made something and somebody got hurt or worse. This is a theme of “them versus those” perception.

Stop and ask, When is the last time quality and safety were discussed as one topic in your current company’s operations?

You received a defective tool or product …
You issued a defective tool or product …
A customer complained …
A customer was hurt …

Each of the occurrences above often triggers an owner for each type of problem:

The supplier …
The vendor …
The contractor …
The manufacturer …
The end user …

We can stop and ask, Who would investigate each type of problem? What tools would each group use to investigate? What are their expertise and experiences in investigation, evidence collection, root cause analysis, corrective action development, or corrective action implementation?

This is where we create our own internal silos for problem-solving; each problem often has its own department as listed in the company’s organizational chart:

  1. Customer Service (Quality)
  2. Manufacturing (Quality or Engineering)
  3. Supplier Management (Supply or Quality)
  4. EHS (Safety)
  5. Risk (Quality)
  6. Compliance (?)

The investigations then take the shape of the tools and experiences of those departments’ training and experiences.

Does anyone else see a problem or an opportunity here?

Auditing: A better way to approach investigations on problems and losses

May 10th, 2018 by

This Wednesday, for our Facebook Live discussion, TapRooT® professionals Benna Dortch and Dave Janney tackled why companies are not proactive in addressing and solving recurring problems and the key differences between incident investigation root cause analysis and the root cause analysis of audit findings. Within this conversation, we touched on inadequate or ineffective audits and why it is those fall short of yielding improvements.

Dave’s book, TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Audits and Proactive Performance Improvement, is part of the TapRooT® for Audits set that fleshes out the topic of audits into seven steps. Feel free to order the set and call on us for further discussion or a training course.
