Errors and defects are a problem in virtually every industry. The goal of defect-free/error-free product or service delivery is the aim of every company. However, in order to eliminate defects or errors permanently, you must use a disciplined approach in order to ensure that the problem does not recur. One of the most widely-used tools is the 8 Disciplines (8D) methodology. 8D requires you to identify and fix the problem immediately (put a bandaid on it) while identifying the Root Cause(s), and take steps to address the problem in the short term as well as in the long term (permanent fix).

In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to apply the many tools used to identify possible causes, determine (with data) which is the true root cause (or causes, as there may be some compounding of problems occurring), and how to fix them – permanently.

8D is used by a wide variety of industries – from service to design, manufacturing, and fulfillment. 8D has been used by sales forces, development teams, hourly personnel, and C suite effectively, and is a technique that is easily mastered.

One of the biggest detractors to using the 8D technique is that it does not always address the issue fully. However, after studying the reasons behind this weakness, I’ve developed an additional emphasis to minimize risk and maximize success using the 8D framework. This is the only course that teaches this additional emphasis, and I developed this methodology when I was hired by Motorola to eliminate returns for a particular defect (after previous efforts had seen the defect return). I’ve been teaching this “magic bullet” method ever since.

The course is highly interactive and will require all participants to work through examples in class, allowing you to learn experientially as well as through lecture. Class notes are provided so you can concentrate on what we’re talking about vs. taking copious notes.

In this two-day workshop seminar, you’ll learn how broad-based this technique is, how it can be easily adapted for a wide variety of industries, and how to participate in, and lead, an 8D team.

Lunch
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material
USB with seminar presentation
