RCA Rt is a structured problem solving method. It is complemented with RCA2GO, a web-based rich software toolbox and issue management system available anytime, anywhere. Endless scalability in RCA Rt and accessibility of RCA2GO software empowers your entire team to solve and improve together.
Some examples of how RCA Rt structured problem solving and its RCA2GO software can be used on a daily basis:
ELIMINATE POTENTIAL THREATS & INCIDENTS
All businesses make errors. Those that don't understand the reasons for failure can not hope to implement successful countermeasures and could certainly make similar errors again. Best organisations look for errors, learn from their mistakes.
DIG INTO IRREGULAR
Some issues or problems occur only in combination with certain factors and special circumstances. Understanding and noticing each such combination is an exhausting process if you don't have a good problem solving and issue management tool.
SOLVE COSTLY & UNCERTAIN CONDITIONS
Routinely incorporate a review of risks on all issues, in such a way that makes the vital few critical issues visible at the right level of accountability.
ANALYSE WIDER SYSTEMIC ISSUES & CONDITIONS
Many repeating problems in our lives arise from deep systemic issues; they can be deeply embedded in wrong practices and mindsets. Solving them requires a "no blame" objective approach exploring new avenues of thought. Let RCA2GO help you investigate systemic causes and implement change.
RETENTION & SUCCESSION PLANNING
In theory, all organisations love their employees. But too often failure leads to blame, damaging trust, cooperation and respect. Address the systemic issues underlying the failure by using RCA2GO, to give employees the best chance to succeed.
You know you are good, have the best people and ideas, but also know you can be better? Where is that hidden issue that prevents you from reaching new heights? Employ RCA2GO in all aspects of your processes, share knowledge and your insights will become deeper.
Is it a trend, or a random occurrence? Who reported it first time? Who tracked it since? With whom was the issue shared? Was it escalated? What else was noted during each occurrence? Does it align with established trends? Use RCA2GO to capture the facts.
PROTECT & PRESERVE STRATEGIC ASSETS
Keeping your strategic assets in best possible shape is not a matter of "maintenance to return to as good as new" — it needs to be better than new, by removing the reasons for failure. True understanding is required and clear documentation to avoid introducing unforeseen errors with "improvement ".
RECOGNISE & REALISE HIDDEN POTENTIAL
A proverbial pot of gold may be buried under your doorstep, but you may know nothing about it. Use RCA2GO to analyse both problems and successes, to reveal hidden potential and unexpected new possibilities. Use RCA2GO to analyse the root cause(s) of success, so that it can be repeated.
Use RCA2GO to help you in continuous improvement of business processes and workflows, overcoming the risks of an ageing workforce, minimising silo mentality, understanding real business needs, leadership development, managing business information, and much more.
ELIMINATE WASTED PROCESSES, TIME & MONEY
Use RCA2GO to help you map major processes within your organisation. Expand further into smaller branches, recognise defects and waste. Optimise processes, to help you save time and money, increase productivity.
IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL & WORK SAFETY PRACTICE
Leaving the environment in even better condition than you found it, taking care of the wellbeing of your people, and at the same time reaching new levels of efficiency, are one and same goal for today's responsible organisations and business. Let RCA2GO help you analyse and improve yours.
TRIGGER ALERTS & PREVENTIVE ACTIVITIES
RCA2GO enables you to chart and track complex processes, capture comments, notes, alerts, and describe in detail all preventive activities that must be triggered and completed at a certain time, at a certain place, to overcome difficulties and solve problems forever.
SOURCE SOLUTIONS, ON BUDGET, ON TIME
For many questions in problem solving you may or may not have the right answer within the organisation, or within the team. However, at any time you may source external help, invite experts to join your real world RCA Rt and online RCA2GO team, plan all well ahead, on budget, on time.
IMPROVE QUALITY & TAKE LEAD IN INNOVATION
By eliminating issues in your production and fine tuning overall operations, significant quality improvements are possible. But not only that — such new efficiency becomes a platform for unprecedented innovation. To boldly go where no one has gone before
is not a science fiction any more, but becomes a reality.
IMPROVE PROCESSES & COMMUNICATION
Problem elimination delivers improved product quality, money saved and potential hazards avoided, fine tuning of processes, less friction within different organisational groups, smoother flow of information, reduction of clutter and misinformation, better knowledge sharing and overall satisfaction — all possible to achieve with RCA2GO.
