The root cause analysis chart

It was not a pretty sight.  Neither my scribbled notes on the back of an old memo
nor the picture that the root cause analysis was starting to paint.  Sam was
telling a story that made my hair stand on end.  How could a company
shoot itself in the foot with so much ease?  Was it true?...I still wonder.


A really rough root cause analysis diagram.  It wasn't pretty and neither was the situtaion.  When you draw a diagram, you can undoubtedly do a better job.

And the rest of the story remains to be told.  But the ultimate root cause
appears to have some relation to greed.

Contact me if you want the rest of the story.
