Do You Believe that Root Cause Analysis Ignorance is Bliss?


Ignorance is Bliss?

From many people’s actions, you might believe that they think “ignorance is bliss” is true.

They ignore the real root causes of problems and just attack the symptoms.

Even the cartoon characters Calvin and Hobbs commented on it.

Is this the Way You Treat Root Cause Analysis?

Would you rather have a simple root cause analysis with a WRONG answer?

For over a decade, I’ve explained the shortcomings of 5-Whys for root cause analysis, but some still believe that the easy is best. (Examples: 1, 2, 3, and 4)

What if you could find and fix the real root causes of what you think are “simple incidents” with a robust, advanced system (TapRooT® RCA) and not make the investigation difficult? You would put in only the effort needed for the size and importance of the problem. Your investigation would be as simple as possible without being too simple.

Einstein - simple

And your corrective actions would be effective and stop repeat incidents.
