VIV Podcast

Addressing the Root Cause, Not the Symptoms: Root Cause Investigations for CAPA.

This Week on VIV

In this episode, Jim and Stacey speak about the reasoning for such an emphasis on investigations and corrective actions, highlight the current guidance on CAPA investigations, cover the best tools for investigations beyond the “5 Whys” and Fishbone diagram, dispelling the “rule of three” that many companies count on, while defining what constitutes an acceptable root cause, “human error,” “training” and “revise the procedure" over used in corrective actions, and much more.

For step by step investigation advise, and tips on drilling down into the root cause for CAPA planning and analysis our listeners can review Jim’s latest book: Root Cause Investigations for CAPA: Clear and Simple by visiting the PDA Bookstore.
