Event Details

The topic of this month's meeting will be Root Cause Analysis. The guest speaker will be Holly Maher who will be speaking on The Cause Mapping method.


The Cause Mapping method is an extremely effective systems-thinking approach to root cause analysis that improves the way people collect and organize information.  It minimizes terminology and buzzwords by focusing on basic principles.  Clear communication is required for solving problems effectively.

The Cause Mapping method of root cause analysis helps people understand why a failure or problem occurred in their operations.  Uncovering the specific details of why a problem happened is essential for identifying exactly what needs to be done to prevent it.

Cause Mapping breaks the analysis  down into specific cause-and-effect relationships laid out in an intuitive, visual format that allows everyone to "see" all of the information.   The visual benefit is invaluable in managing varying points of view, managing the dialogue, and minimizing the time required to get to actionable, effective solutions.

When we talk about getting back to basics, we really mean getting back to basics.  We challenge people with,

  • How do you define “cause?”
  • What does “root” cause mean?
  • What does prevention mean?

 We want to clear away the confusion that has built up over time and get back to a simple, transparent, obvious method to analyze problems – problems which provide insight into what is not going so well in your work processes.

Additional notes:  There is no charge for parking at the CPCC Harris Campus - park in any available (unmarked) space. Dinner will be provided.
