RESOLVE IT NOW: Problem Solving Training Series
March 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The virtual Problem Solving Training Series will meet on March 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
How much time do you spend solving the same problems over and over again? Learn how to problem solve – and finally resolve the root cause – utilizing various problem-solving methods including:
- Defining the problem
- Getting to the root cause through deploying root cause investigation tools like asking the 5 Whys and fishbone diagramming
- Learning how to create S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time bound) countermeasures
- Evaluating outcomes and standardizing success
Session 1 | March 1: Learn how to recognize a good problem statement and then be able to create one of our own.
Session 2 | March 8: Revisit the problem statement and further develop it through a process of problem investigation and understanding.
Session 3 | March 15: Discuss Root Cause Identification and how we get to the “true” root cause of a problem. Implement solutions and countermeasures to take-action on permanently fixing the problems so that they do not return.
Session 4 | March 22: Discuss evaluating results from our trials, then once proven, moving on to standardization and control of the solution(s).
