When should you ask for root cause analysis help? TapRooT® TV premiere, Wednesday, June 12

Join TapRooT® TV’s Benna Hughes and Ken Reed as they discuss “When should you ask for root cause analysis help?” tomorrow just after noon.

Either before the premiere starts or after, glean insights from Mark Paradies’ article, “Root Cause Analysis Help.” You will become familiar with “The Blame Trap” (blame-oriented environment), “The Knowledge Gap/Technical Help,” “The Referee Trap,” and more. Pay attention to Mark’s advice, “You are going to need a fresh pair of eyes”—especially when you have an incident that repeats itself over and over or if your investigation becomes “stuck.”

The best root cause analysis leads to effective corrective actions

The TAPROOT® SYSTEM teaches you to be a very effective problem-solver. The System is a process with techniques to investigate, analyze, and develop corrective actions to solve problems. The TapRooT® process and tools are completely described in the TAPROOT® BOOK.
