    Business Analysts don’t just document requirements; we shape solutions.  Effective solutions address the root causes of a problem (or opportunity).  Explore the roots underlying root cause. Trace cause-effect analysis from its origins in statistical quality control and systems thinking, through A3 thinking and failure modes, to recent developments like design thinking and Cynefin. This interactive session will re-imagine problem solving as an experimental process for BA’s.
