Live Webinar Lean for Root Cause Analysis & Corrective Action

May 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Developing an Effective CAPA Strategy

Course Overview

A key role for Quality Assurance professionals is identifying and addressing deviations from standard operating procedures and regulatory requirements. In order to effectively prevent recurrence of the events, it is very important to correctly identify and address the underlying root causes. This not only involves dealing with specific incidents but also taking a holistic view of the process to ensure that it is fundamentally sound and is designed in such a way as to minimize the occurrences of deviations. This workshop will leverage Lean principles to get beyond the common root cause identification of “human error”. The tools and techniques presented in this course can be applied to everyday work to make processes simpler and reduce the time and effort required to complete daily tasks.
