Apollo Root Cause Analysis for Facilitators | RealityCharting™ -ARCA Workshop
May 11, 2020 - May 13, 2020
What is it?
Apollo Root Cause Analysis™ – ARCA™ methodology was originally developed in the mid 1980’s by Dean L. Gano as a result of his inability to find an effective method for solving safety problems encountered in his position within the nuclear power industry. While several problem-solving methods were available at the time, none were proven to be consistently effective.
After its initial introduction, interest in the ARCA™ was sparked within heavy industry as organizations sought a simple, structured, yet highly effective method for solving manufacturing, reliability and EH&S issues. Continued interest led to the creation of Apollonian Publications LLC and RealityCharting – training, investigation and consulting firm.
Since that time, ARCA™ has continued to evolve and advance with our most recent introduction of RealityCharting® v7.9. Presently ARCA™ is utilized in many diverse industries and organizations across the globe and taught in several languages. Each year, thousands of students from widely diverse backgrounds and industry are trained in ARCA™ to generate improvements, eliminate defects, prevent issues, and provide value to their organizations. No other Problem Solving course combines the analysis of critical thinking with the creative process so that effective solutions are found almost every time.
This course exposes common characteristics of ineffective problem solving so Practitioners or Facilitators can recognize and prevent the analysis team – RCA Participants – from falling into non-value added discussions to help them get to effective solutions.
Analysis Cycle and Quality are key factors. Practitioners learn the concepts of effective ARCA™ and incident analysis including establishing problem definition, problem significant and value, building a common reality chart for all stakeholders through the ARCA™ cause and effect charting process, including generating effective solutions and reporting.
Students are challenged with exercises that accurately portray common workplace problems, including role-playing group activities in which they perform an actual ARCA™ case study.
We know that people learn by doing. Which is why our training courses are designed to be highly interactive and hands-on. During the course participants will complete a variety of exercises and work in teams to solve real problems and come away with:
A new way of thinking and deep understanding of cause and effect relationships
The ability to select the most effective solutions using a ‘solution test’
Confidence to lead a team through a root cause analysis from start to finish
