Improving Processes Using Root Cause Analysis
"The greatest value of a defect is to learn from
it." That's a key concept in our software quality training courses. The question is, however,
"How do we learn from defects and prevent them from happening again?"
This workshop is designed to teach people how to improve any process by using proven techniques and processes for identifying and correcting root causes of problems. This is a very experiential course, with more exercises than lecture. Practical exercises and case studies are used to allow people to identify root causes and design process improvement.
The course textbook is The Root Cause Analysis Handbook: A Simplified Approach to Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting
