Taiichi Ohno is known to have said that “having no problems is the biggest problem of all.” He viewed problems not as a negative but as a “Kaizen opportunity in disguise.” Whenever problems arose, he encouraged his staff to investigate the problem at the source and to ask “why” five times about every matter.
In a series of events, where people are involved, mistakes happen. Functional areas such as software engineering, industrial engineering or more general areas such as medicine, law, or sociology – these areas are composed by a series of events, involving people, process, machines, environment, and other items. Undoubtedly, mistakes will happen.
What typically happens in response to mistakes is that blame is thrown around, which builds resistance, then communication fails which could lead to project failure. The better approach is to identify the root cause of mistakes and attack that, instead of what might be perceived as the cause: Perceived causes are most likely symptoms and not the root cause, in which case the problem was never really solved. This approach, more rigorous and long-lasting, to solving problems is called Root Cause Analysis. A Root Cause is a process factor which directly defines the reason for the problem when it is present and is having an influence on the process and its output.
