    Root Cause Analysis Assessment Manager Toolkit – Utilization, Solutions, Advantages, BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal):

    Root Cause Analysis

    Root Cause Analysis is a systematic approach used by organizations to identify the underlying causes of incidents or problems, and implement solutions to prevent them from recurring in the future. It involves identifying and analyzing the root cause of an issue, rather than just addressing the symptoms. To effectively use this method, organizations should have repeatable processes in place for conducting root cause analysis, tracking incidents and problems, and reporting metrics.

    1. Implementing automated root cause analysis tools: These tools can help identify underlying issues quickly and accurately.

    2. Utilizing a dedicated team for RCA: Having a dedicated team for RCA can ensure consistent analysis and resolution of incidents.

    3. Conducting RCA training for staff: Educating staff on RCA best practices can improve the quality and effectiveness of analysis.

    4. Integrating CMDB with RCA tools: Connecting the CMDB with RCA tools can provide real-time incident data for analysis.

    5. Utilizing data mining techniques: Data mining can help identify patterns and common causes of incidents.

    6. Implementing a structured problem management process: A well-defined problem management process can ensure issues are thoroughly investigated and resolved.

    7. Establishing metrics and reporting: Regularly tracking and reporting on RCA metrics can help identify trends and areas for improvement.

    – Improves incident resolution time
    – Increases accuracy of RCA analysis
    – Identifies recurring issues
    – Provides insights for process improvement
    – Enhances overall service quality and availability

    CONTROL QUESTION: Does the organization have repeatable processes for root cause analysis, incident and problem management tracking and metrics reporting?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    In 10 years, our organization will be recognized as a global leader in root cause analysis, incident and problem management.

    Root Cause Analysis Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Case Study: Root Cause Analysis in an Organization

    The client, a large multinational company in the manufacturing industry, faced frequent incidents and problems that affected their operations and customer satisfaction. The company lacked a structured approach to identify and address the root cause of these incidents and problems, resulting in recurring issues and high costs. As a result, the organization sought the help of a consulting firm to improve its root cause analysis (RCA) processes, incident and problem management tracking, and metrics reporting to minimize the impact of incidents and problems on their operations and customers.

    Consulting Methodology:

    1. Needs Assessment:
    The consultant conducted a thorough needs assessment to understand the current state of RCA processes, incident and problem management tracking, and metrics reporting in the organization. Data was collected through interviews with key stakeholders, process evaluation, and review of existing documentation. The needs assessment revealed gaps and challenges in the current processes, including lack of standardization, inadequate documentation, and limited data analysis capabilities.

    2. Design:
    Based on the findings of the needs assessment, the consultant designed a streamlined and standardized root cause analysis process that aligns with industry best practices. This design included clearly defined roles and responsibilities, documented procedures, and a system for tracking and reporting incidents and problems.

    3. Implementation:
    The implementation phase focused on training and communication to ensure smooth adoption of the new processes. All employees involved in incident and problem management underwent training on the new RCA process. Additionally, communication plans were put in place to inform all stakeholders about the changes and their roles in the new process.


    1. Standardized RCA Process:
    The consultant delivered a comprehensive RCA process that outlined the steps to be followed for identifying and addressing the root cause of incidents and problems. This process incorporated best practices from industry standards such as ITIL and Six Sigma, and was tailored to fit the organization′s unique requirements.

    2. Incident and Problem Management Tracking System:
    To ensure efficient tracking and management of incidents and problems, the consultant implemented a system that allowed for the capture, categorization, prioritization, and monitoring of all incidents and problems reported by the organization.

    3. Metrics Reporting Framework:
    A metrics reporting framework was also developed to track and report key performance indicators (KPIs) related to incident and problem management. This framework included measures such as mean time to resolution, incident and problem recurrence, and customer satisfaction.

    Implementation Challenges:

    1. Resistance to Change:
    One of the main challenges faced during the implementation phase was resistance to change from some employees who were used to the old processes. To overcome this challenge, the consultant conducted thorough training sessions and communicated the benefits of the new processes to all stakeholders.

    2. Limited Data Availability:
    Another challenge faced was the limited availability of data on past incidents and problems, making it difficult to analyze trends and patterns. The consultant worked closely with the client to gather as much data as possible from historical records and encourage employees to report all incidents and problems going forward.


    1. Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR):
    This measures the average time taken to resolve incidents and problems. The target was set at reducing the MTTR by 25% within the first six months of implementation.

    2. Incident and Problem Recurrence:
    This KPI measures the number of times an incident or problem reoccurs after being resolved. The goal was to reduce the number of recurring incidents and problems by 50% within the first year.

    3. Customer Satisfaction:
    The consultant collaborated with the client to develop a customer satisfaction survey to measure the impact of improved RCA processes on overall customer satisfaction. The target was set at achieving a minimum 10% increase in customer satisfaction scores within the first year.

    Management Considerations:

    1. Employee Training:
    To maintain the effectiveness of the new processes, continuous training programs were put in place to educate new employees and refresh the existing workforce on the importance and proper execution of the RCA process.

    2. Regular Audits:
    The consultant recommended regular audits of the processes to ensure compliance and identify any areas for improvement. These audits were also an opportunity to gather feedback from employees and make necessary adjustments.


    In conclusion, the implementation of improved root cause analysis processes, incident and problem management tracking, and metrics reporting in the organization resulted in significant improvements in operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. With a standardized RCA process, data-driven decision making, and continuous monitoring of KPIs, the organization now has a repeatable and effective approach to identifying and resolving incidents and problems. This case study highlights the importance of implementing structured and standardized RCA processes in organizations to minimize the impact of incidents and problems on their operations and customer satisfaction.
