What is 5 Why? 

The 5-Why method is remarkably simple: when a problem occurs, you drill down to its root cause by asking "Why?" five times. Then, when a countermeasure becomes apparent, you follow it through to prevent the issue from recurring.

This course is more than just a 5 Whys template. It gives you a frame of mind for conducting any type of root cause analysis faster and better.
