Root Cause Analysis for your NonprofitJun 23, 2022
Whether we like it or not, we’re going to run into problems and, as a leader of a nonprofit, we can’t ignore these problems. You may have a couple of things you can think of right now where mistakes were made, or an event happened and you haven’t quite known how to address it.
In this episode, I discuss root cause analysis as a formal process you can take any time something goes considerably wrong. This process should help you feel confident in attacking issues and making sure they don't happen again.
The reason most leaders don’t take the time to do root cause analysis is that 1) they don’t have time and 2) they are concerned that whatever the solution is will just add more work to their already over-extended workload, but that doesn’t have to be the case. This can actually take more work off your plate and help you sleep better at night.
