Session/Day Two:  Root Cause Analysis

Root cause analysis is a process to identify and resolve the root cause behind problems to prevent recurring failures.  As part of the audit process, root cause analysis is an essential element of communicating finds and determining the corrective actions.  While management should perform root cause analysis, they often don't have the time and will simply implement a recommendation provided by the auditors.  This means that auditors must complete a root cause analysis.  however, identifying the root cause is hard and often overlooked by auditors.  Moreover, the root cause may be politically sensitive when communicated by auditors.
