SIRF Roundtables VICTAS presents

TAS - 5 Whys / A3 Problem Solving Workshop | 1 day | RCARt

5 Whys + A3 is a one day training course presented by SIRF Roundtables VICTAS in a structured process for solving problems and escalating issues.

Article on problem solvers vs resistance to change

This one day workshop will open the door to a simple, intuitive, and effective method of problem solving, suitable for front line problem solvers to handle 80% of the repeating problems they face every day.

Having an effective problem solving method is essential in any business today, and it must exist at an individual, team and organizational levels. It is required for safety incident evaluation, equipment breakdown, and continuous improvement projects.

Participants learn to solve routine issues using 5 WHYS and to communicate and collaborate as a team using A3’s. They will gain skills in looking at the problem clearly, identifying the basic causes, assessing the impact, understanding risk, finding quick-win workable solutions & incorporating changes into business processes.

The one day format allows time to work in small groups to practice and apply the skills that have been learned on real problems from the participant’s own work environment.

What participants learn:

  • How to properly define a problem without jumping to solutions

  • How to find root cause(s) with the 5-whys methodology

  • The three-way test to make sure that the causes are genuine

  • How to document a problem and the solutions using an A3

  • How to understand risk and cost/benefits of problem solution

Do you need to train a group of people? Would you like to have this course for your whole team onsite? Or perhaps you are interested in hosting a public course and sending a few people? Get in touch with us for more information!

SIRF Roundtables developed this course after repeated requests from our members for affordable, effective problem solving training with flexible delivery options, while still being easy to integrate into their existing safety, quality, or continuous improvement programs. We can even customise the delivery for in-house programs to only use examples from your own workplace! Contact us for more information!

Early Bird expires 1 month prior to the event taking place.
