Learn to use the license-fee-free SOURCE™ root cause analysis (RCA) methodology for investigating incidents. This methodology will help you initiate a RCA incident investigation, gather data for investigating all types of incidents, collect data through interviews and parts analyses and apply powerful techniques (timelines, cause and effect trees, Root Cause Map™ and 5-whys) for causal factor and root cause identification.

Avoid future incidents by developing appropriate recommendations using our four-level recommendation development guidance to address each of the causal factors and root causes, structure reports for optimum effectiveness, develop your data-trending process to identify systemic problem areas and more.
