MIS 600 Topic 2 Root Cause Analysis Diagram GCU
There are many possible causes for a problem. In some instances, the origin of an issue may seem minor and can lie deeply within an organization. A problem may also have a variety of effects for the development and sustainability of an organization. As a result, in order for a company to begin strategizing a solution for managing data, it has to first identify the root cause or potential causes of a problem.
For this assignment, identify an organization that has had a major issue with storing or managing data. This would require either online research in order to identify an organization that has received local or national attention for this issue, or a personal familiarity with a particular organization with which you have worked in some capacity. In either instance, the issue described will be identified as a problem or an effect. Once the existing outcome or effect has been identified, use a fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram or the 5-Whys method to determine the major causes of the organization’s problem. The purpose of this assignment is to identify the strategies or process used to validate the data or, in this case, problem.
