cause and effect analysis



Group exercise in which participants try to list all possible causes and their effects (and identify how they are linked) associated with a particular problem or situation. It aims at discovering possible or probable causal factors and their outcomes (not necessarily the root cause, the removal of which will stop the recurrence of the problem) and may lead to the creation of a cause and effect diagram.
