Root Cause Analysis (RCA)

  • To get to the root of the problem efficiently and thereby improve a process, effective problem-solvers use something called root cause analysis.
  • Root causes can be uncovered and analyzed by using a number or approaches, techniques, and tools that help the problem-solver get to the heart of the problem and find its cause(s). Some such tools are generic and can be used in many applications; others are suited solely for root cause analysis.
