- Case Studies and Business Applications
For decades management consultants, academicians and practitioners have been searching for an effective (if not foolproof) approach to solving problems. Shewhart, Ishikawa, Holland and others pursued a statistical approach to analyzing and understanding process problems and their causes. Others developed intuitive techniques for defining problems so that causes and solutions could be tested more efficiently. Although both of these strategies are helpful, the search continued. This intensive workshop is designed to move beyond past and current techniques for basic problem solving or mere problem analysis to present an advanced process for solving problems. It does so by connecting a statistical understanding of work processes (i.e. variation) and a structured, systematic approach to root cause analysis.
