Use this technique to unravel the causes and effects of a problem.
When you have a problem to solve, it can be useful to identify all of the possible causes, then address each one in turn. This is fine in many situations, but it can also be time-consuming and costly...
In situations where the possible causes are going to be expensive to deal with, it's helpful to use an Interrelationship Diagram, instead. These, simple diagrams, help you to map out the relationships between all possible causes of the problem, so that you can identify the most significant ones and focus on those first.
In this article, we'll look at Interrelationship Diagrams, and we'll explore how you can use them to identify the probable root causes of a problem.
