Why is getting the best root cause analysis training possible a great investment?
Why do you train employees to investigate accidents, incidents, quality problems, equipment failures, and process upsets? Because those events:
- Cost Lives
- Cause Injuries
- Ruin the Reputation of Your Product and Company
- Cause Regulatory Issues (and Big Fines)
- Cause Expensive Downtime
- Cause Missed Schedules and Delayed Shipments
You want to learn from past problems to prevent future issues. Its even better if you can learn from small problems to prevent big accidents.
Therefore, you invest in your employees education because you expect a return on your investment. That return is:
- No Fatalities
- Reduced Injuries (Better LTI Stats)
- A Reputation for Excellent Product Quality
- Good Relations with Your Regulators and Community
- Excellent Equipment Reliability and Reduced Corrective Maintenance Costs
- Work Completed on Schedule
- Shipments Go Out On Time and On Budget
When you think about your investment in root cause analysis training, think about the results you want. Review the diagram below (you’ve probably seen something like it before). Many managers want something for nothing. They want fast, free, and great root cause analysis training. But what does the diagram say? Forget about it! You can’t even have fast-great-cheap (impossible utopia). They usually end up with something dipped in ugly sauce and created with haste and carelessness! (Does 5-Why training ring a bell?)

What should you choose? TapRooT® Training. What does it do for you? Gives you guaranteed return on your investment.
What? A guarantee? That’s right. Here is our TRAINING GUARANTEE:
Attend a course, go back to work, and use what you have learned to analyze accidents, incidents, near-misses, equipment failures, operating issues, or quality problems. If you don’t find root causes that you previously would have overlooked and if you and your management don’t agree that the corrective actions that you recommend are much more effective, just return your course materials/software and we will refund the entire course fee.
How can we make such an iron-clad guarantee? Because we have spent almost 30 years developing the world’s best root cause analysis system that has been tested and reviewed by experts and used by industry leaders. Over 10,000 people each year are trained to use TapRooT® to find and fix the root causes of accidents, quality problems, and other issues. Because of this extensive worldwide user base, we know that TapRooT® will help you achieve operational excellence. Thus, we know your investment will be worthwhile.
Plus, we think you will be happy with the investment you need to make when you see the results that you will get. What kind of results? That depends on the risk you have to mitigate and the way you apply what you learn, but CLICK HERE to see success stories submitted by TapRooT® Users.
Don’t think that the return on investment has to be a long term waiting game (although long term investments are sometimes worthwhile). Read this story of a FAST ROI example:
One of the students in a 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Team Leader Course came up to me on day 3 of the course and told me that the course had already paid for itself many times over.
I asked him what he meant. He said while we were teaching that morning, he identified a problem in some engineering work they were doing, and the savings he had avoided, (he had immediately called back to the office), totaled over $1 million dollars.
That’s a great return on investment. A $2500 course and a $1,000,000 payback. That’s about a 40000% instant ROI.
How much value can you achieve from your investment in great root cause analysis? Consider these issues:
- How much is human error costing your company?
- If the EPA fines you $100,000 per day for an environmental permit violation, how much could it cost?
- What is your reputation for product quality worth?
- How much is just one day of downtime worth to your factory?
- How much would a major accident cost?
I’m not asking you to take my word for how much great root cause analysis training (TapRooT® Training) will help your company. I’m just asking you to give it a try to see how much it can help your company.
Just send one person to one of our 2-Day or 5-Day TapRooT® Courses. Then see how they can help solve problems using the TapRooT® Techniques. I know that you will be pleased and I’ll feel good about the lives you will save, the improvements in quality that you will make, and the improved bottom line that your company will achieve when you get more people trained.
