The Titanic

108 years ago today, at 1:30 p.m. on April 11, 1912. The Titanic left Queenstown, Ireland heading for New York. She was carrying more than 2,228 people, including passengers and crew.

They were probably having a jolly good time on board at this point in the journey. However,  as we know late at night on 14th April – all hell let loose. What exactly caused 1500 people to perish?

Root cause analysis can be a pretty dry subject – but when an organisation has a failure, it’s key to understand what happened and why it happened so that we can stop it from happening again.

By tracing back these actions, we discover where the problem started and how it grew into a failure. Every organisations has problems from time to time so it’s important to equip your team with the skills to understand what went wrong.
