Recently Branded Whiteboards have been helping many large scale organisations implement the use of problem solving tools in the work place with great success.
Fishbone Diagrams and 5 Whys charts are a great tool for troubleshooting, problem solving and quality improvement. And they are a great template for a Branded Whiteboard.
The Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram, Fishbone diagram — all they are the names of one and the same visual method for working with causal connections.
Problems are obstacles and challenges that one should overcome to reach the goal. They are an inseparable part of any business, and the success of an enterprise often depends on ability to solve all problems effectively. The process of problem solving often uses rational approach, helping to find a suitable solution. Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving is a productive and illustrative tool to identify the most important factors causing the trouble.
The 5 Whys technique, originally developed by Sakicki Toyoda in the 1930s, is most effective when the answers come from people who have hands-on experience of the process being examined. It is a simple tool - When a problem occurs, you drill down to its root cause by asking "Why?" five times. The process uses counter-measures rather than solutions to prevent an issue from reoccurring.
Having a Fishbone whiteboard #fishbonewhiteboardor5 Whys Whiteboard#5whyswhiteboard on hand to troubleshoot issues as they occur, with hands-on staff, is invaluable.
