Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action

Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action Training Course


The 1-Day Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action course teaches key problem solving techniques that will yield implementation of effective corrective actions.

The course provides the skills to look for underlying causes of problems that impact an organization’s operations and ultimately its profitability.

By performing exercises and group discussions, attendees will develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the uncovering of true root causes of problems and the implementation of meaningful corrective actions to help the organization improve.
