The Big Risk of Waiting, Part 2

Last week we talked about bad root cause analysis programs, why people continue to use them, and the great risk of using an inadequate root cause analysis system in “The Big Risk of Waiting, Part 1.”

Today, I’d like to discuss how to improve using TapRooT®.  Even if you already use TapRooT® you can still find ideas to improve.

New to TapRooT®?  Try it now!  TapRooT® is guaranteed.  Attend a TapRooT® Course.  Take what you learn and apply it at work.  If you don’t find root causes that you previously would have missed and develop corrective actions that you and your management agree are more effective, just return the class materials and we will refund the entire course fee.

If you are short on time or have budget concerns, start with the 2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course.  This includes the essential tools necessary to successfully complete an investigation. Learn essential TapRooT® techniques, and how to check corrective action effectiveness using the SMARTER technique.  (View courses.)

Already use TapRooT®?  The 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training is ideal for the representative of a company that is ready to take the next step. The 5-day course includes essential TapRooT® Techniques, Advanced Techniques and TapRooT® Software. Trainees learn all the techniques needed to lead difficult investigations.  TapRooT® software is included in the course fee making it an excellent value.  (View courses.)

Everyone, new to TapRooT® or not, is invited to learn root cause analysis best practices and solutions at the 2013 Global TapRooT® Summit.  Summit week is March 18-22, 2013 in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  Each year we consult with and teach root cause analysis to the world’s leading companies. This interaction makes us premier “knowledge brokers.” Instead of keeping all the best practices we learn to ourselves, we share them once a year at the TapRooT® Summit. This sharing started out as a simple three day meeting of our best TapRooT® users. Over 15 years, it has grown to an international event with world-renowned speakers and multiple tracks designed to share best practices within and across industries and professions.  (Learn more.)

Can’t Decide?  You can’t afford the big risk of waiting.  The risk is too great!  Don’t wait for the perfect solution – get started!  If you make a less-than-perfect choice, you are still moving forward.  Taking action is a big step to improvement.
