Apollo Associated Services Announces 2011 RCA Public Seminar Training Schedule

In the two-day “RCA for Practitioners” course, attendees obtain the knowledge and skills needed to lead an Apollo root cause analysis. This course examines many of the common pitfalls used in problem solving and how to avoid them.  Students learn how to clearly define any event-based problem; the principles of gathering evidence; interviewing and facilitating an Apollo RCA with a team of participants; and how to use the Apollo four-step process to develop a causal understanding of an event and identify effective solutions. Students learn how to use Apollo’s software to build cause and effect charts, prepare RCA reports and effectively communicate RCA findings. RCA skills and knowledge are reinforced with many “hands-on” exercises that allow students to apply the Apollo RCA method to real-world problems.

In the one-day “Super User” course, students learn how to align an Apollo RCA program with their organizational goals and objectives. Included are modules on advanced RCA facilitation techniques, how to effectively review practitioner’s RCAs, human error and driving behaviors, facilitator development, program payback, metrics, and program design/rollout.  The course will provide students with the knowledge necessary to effectively lead and implement an Apollo RCA program and develop highly skilled facilitators.
