FREE Webinar: Top 3 Most Common Root Cause Analysis and Corrective & Preventive Action Mistakes

Fri, Aug 3, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Think of the last 10 corrective actions implemented in your company. On a scale from 1-10, how likely is the same problem to reoccur? How many of them have already reoccurred? If your answer is higher than 2 or 3, then your company, like most companies, is probably bleeding money because of ineffective Root Cause Analysis/Corrective & Preventive Actions. If the corrective actions you are thinking of have potentially serious consequences, then even 1 or 2 might be too high. This 1-hour webinar will give a brief introduction to Root Cause Analysis and Corrective & Preventive action. We will also discuss the top three most common mistakes made when writing and implementing corrective and preventive action plans and give real-world examples of how to overcome them.
