8 Step Problem Solving
    • Clarify the problem
      • make sure you clearly state the problem and state how it ties to your unit mission
    • Breakdown the problem
      • identify performance gap; what is the current performance compared to desired performance
    • Set a target
      • what level of performance is desired and by when
    • Analyze the root cause
      • get to the level of cause that will ensure the problem does not recur
    • Develop countermeasures
      • identify what specific actions need to be taken to counter the root cause of the problem
    • See countermeasures through
      • follow-up and verify countermeasures are being applied.
    • Evaluate both results and process
      • make sure the countermeasures are providing the results predicted and desired
    • Standardize successful processes
      • share your successes with functionals, make the changes permanent.

Risk Diagram (Process Decision Program Chart) →

Analyze each identified action separately in the tree of all actions and then develop a preventive action in response to potential obstacles or circumstances have been identified as a risk. The PDPC determines the risks when corrective action is not performed correctly. Also, it helps develop descriptions for preventive actions at the level of execution.Risk Diagram (Process Decision Program Chart) *

Process Flowchart →

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools. This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.Process Flowchart
