This seminar exposes you to the Kepner-Tregoe (KT) root-cause analysis method, which has been dubbed by many organizations as the best practice for problem management and root cause analysis. The KT method is a highly structured process for gathering and analysing the data needed to find the correct root cause of the problem.

The KT method focuses on how to:
  • Gather information critical to solving the problem while avoiding irrelevant data
  • Evaluate possible causes systematically to determine the most likely cause
  • Prove conclusively that the true cause has been found
