Learn to use the license-fee-free SOURCE™ root cause analysis (RCA) methodology for investigating incidents. This methodology will help you initiate a root cause analysis incident investigation, gather data for investigating all types of incidents, collect data through interviews and parts analyses, apply powerful techniques (timelines, cause and effect trees, Root Cause MapTM, and 5-whys) for causal factor and root cause identification. Avoid future incidents by developing appropriate recommendations using our four-level recommendation development guidance to address each of the causal factors and root causes, structure reports for optimum effectiveness, develop your data-trending process to identify systemic problem areas, and more. You'll walk away with your course notebook, a copy of our Root Cause Analysis Handbook, our Excel and Visio templates, and access to our online resources for you and your entire organization - no licensing fees to pay.
