The Scientific Method In Relation To Root Cause Analysis

“The next time someone tells you that the ONLY way to investigate an incident is the scientific method, just smile and know that they may have been right in the 17th century, but there is a better way to do it today.” – Mark Paradies.

In this TapRooT® TV video premiere with TapRooT® co-founder Mark Paradies and Barb Carr, editorial director and TapRooT® Instructor, they discuss methodologies for root cause analysis in incident investigation. Catch up on the discussion, as Mark and Barb distill the disciplines and factors that historically have been involved in solving complex problems. Also, peruse Mark’s great article, Scientific Method and Root Cause Analysis, to supplement this significant learning experience. You will find some really good news in the article, by the way.
