Get to the root cause of a problem by asking “why?”
Sometimes, the solution to a problem isn’t as direct or obvious. The 5 Why’s template helps you get to the root cause of your problem faster by continuously asking yourself why that problem exists. This is an especially helpful exercise when you have a persisting problem that you’ve tried to solve before.
Give the 5 Why’s template a try next time you and your team have a challenging problem to solve and you don’t know where to start.
