Corrective Action

We all try to do the best work that we can, however, there are times when things go wrong and problems arise. These things can be in or out of control and result in work that is less than it could be. That is why we take corrective action — to address any problems, deficiencies, or nonconformities that come up from time to time.
In this one-day workshop, we discuss how collaborative problem-solving can lead us to the root causes of problems, deficiencies, or nonconformities so that we, with our team, can use a corrective action process to correct the problem and verify the success of our actions.
