Root cause is the fundamental, underlying reason for a problem. This course allows you to identify the cause of a problem, solve it, and prevent it from occurring again. This will save your organization time, money, and resources.

When a failure incident occurs in your workplace, you must investigate it. But the approach you take in that investigation can often determine how effective you are at preventing similar incidents from happening in the future. Root cause analysis lets an employer discover the underlying or systemic, rather than the generalized or immediate, causes of an incident. Correcting only an immediate cause may eliminate a symptom of a problem—but not the problem itself. A robust process program, which includes root cause analysis of incidents and near misses, can result in more effective control of hazards, improved process reliability, increased revenues, decreased production costs, lower maintenance costs and lower insurance premiums.

Salvo Global’s 3 day course on “Advanced Root Cause Analysis” will enable participants to understand root cause analysis as a procedure for ascertaining and analyzing the causes of problems to determine what can be done to solve or prevent them. Consisting of lectures, practice, and role-playing, this course is designed to provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of how to analyze a system to identify the root causes of problems and how to prevent future occurrences.

By attending this training course, your organization will get sustainable results:

  • Issues and problems will be analyzed to the full extend and presented in a holistic, visual and therefore easy to understand way
  • Complex problems will be solved more rapidly and more effectively, preventing recurrence and providing tangible contribution to business performance
  • The structured disciplined approach for solving problem will enhance communication and collaboration between all people involved 
  • Colleagues of your participant will start asking the right questions as well, triggered by the questions they did not hear before
  • The methods presented, enables the organization to significantly improve any existing continuous improvement approach
