SIMPLE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD IDEAS
Making tough choices. Solving complex problems. Managing various projects. No matter what the last twelve
months has thrown at your business, the choices, problems and projects associated with running your business
will not get any easier. Indeed the resources become scarcer, the implications of errors greater and therefore
the need to ensure results are obtained from all the actions we take is essential. At Kepner-Tregoe (KT) these
thoughts are never far from our mind. For over 50 years weve been at the forefront of helping leaders in
industry improve the efficiency of their business and their people through critical and thought-provoking
approaches focused on delivering impactful financial results and sustainable behavior change. Through our
open programmes we give our existing clients the opportunity to continue the development of their people
in an environment that enables them to draw on the experiences of various industry groups, while new clients
the opportunity to see what we are about. No matter what your motivation for using KT I am confident that the
experience you have will be second to none and the collective and individual results will be a benchmark for
others to achieve. Remember, effective action is always proceeded by clear thinking.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our events in the very near future.

T HE K T AP P R OACH
To move your organisation forward, your high potential people, team
leaders, managers, project managers, supervisors, and executives,
need a set of skills that will coordinate the efforts of the organisation
and move it forward. You need leaders who have the skills to set
direction, make decisions, guide others, communicate clearly and
appropriately, energise people, remove barriers for success, and
resolve conflicts.
Kepner-Tregoe can help you build these skills with systematic
approaches that have been tested, fine-tuned, and proven for
50 years. Based on pioneering research, our methods help your
leadership teams and the people they manage to work more
effectively alone and in groups. KT has been credited with advancing
the careers of generations of leaders and for building organisational
success that can be expressed in profits and growth.
While KT approaches apply across industries, technologies,
geographies and cultures, our in-company training can be customised
to address the issues that are unique to your organisation and to
the needs of supervisory, managerial, and executive levels. This
accelerates understanding and application, rapidly moving new
capabilities from the classroom to the workplace.
At the end of the day,
what counts most is
not the documents
produced, meetings
chaired, or good
intentions expressed
by your organisations
leaders. It is the
results they achieve.

The gold standard in critical thinking skills
This workshop will pay for itselfagain and again!
WOR K S HOP DE S CR I P T I ON
Our classic workshop is the gold standard in critical thinking skills training. The
workshop is presented in a live classroom environment by a certified instructor.
The workshop helps you learn and apply KT questioning techniques that improve
the ability to cut through complex situations, use data effectively, weigh options
logically, and act decisively. You will have the opportunity to use your new skills in
realistic case studies and to address your own work-related issues. You will learn
to maximise your critical thinking skills, systematically organise and prioritise
information, set objectives, evaluate alternatives, and analyse impact.
WHO S HOUL D AT T E ND
Managers and executives as well as any employee who must solve problems, make
decisions, and implement plans will benefit from this workshopnow and for years
to come. Individuals thank us for helping broaden their critical thinking capabilities,
improve their performance, and advance their careers.
WHAT Y OU WI L L L E AR N
During this workshop, you will learn to use four distinct processes and apply them
to your work: Situation Appraisal, Problem Analysis, Decision Analysis and Potential
Problem/Opportunity Analysis.
Some view these processes as
tools, but the processes have a
use that is more important, yet
more subtle. Rational process
teaches people to think before
they act. People learn that they
dont have to know the answer
right away. They dont have to
have a theory immediately. First
you think.

WOR K S HOP DE S CR I P T I ON
Find root cause and take action with speed and accuracy. During this 3-day
workshop, you learn to differentiate between types of problems, ask focused,
probing questions, and find, test and confirm true cause before undertaking
expensive fixes. Additional key concepts include balancing risk before fixing a
problem, examining other areas that could be similarly affected, planning the
implementation of actions, and preparing for the unexpected.
The KT approach to root cause analysis provides a logical framework that supports
statistical process control, Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, total productive
maintenance, self-managed work teams, and other programmes. Over 70% of the
workshop is spent on application and case study practice to ensure that you can
apply your new skills at work.
WHO S HOUL D AT T E ND
Anyone working in a production environment will benefit from this workshop.
WHAT Y OU WI L L L E AR N
This programme focuses on two fundamental skill areas: Find Cause and Take Action.
Each skill is broken down into separate processes to use on the job:
Recognise a Problem Sort out complex situations, separate problems from decisions
or actions, set priority to choose what to work on first, and plan next steps.
Find True Cause Solve problems by first describing the problem in detail. Identify
and test causes to see if they explain the problem description. Prove the true cause
of a problem before making expensive fixes. Use techniques to handle multiple
problems, start-up problems, and recurring problems.
Select a Fix Make choices to resolve problems once the cause is known by
considering objectives, alternatives, and risks to help select or recommend a fix.
Think Beyond the Fix The best troubleshooters think beyond the immediate
problem. Learn to look for other damage created by the cause and ask, What else
needs the same fix? and What other problems could this fix create?
Avoid Future Problems Think ahead before implementing a fix or other action.
Anticipate potential problems and likely causes, recommend preventive action, and
plan contingent action.
For me, the Kepner-Tregoe Analytic Trouble Shooting approach is not just another
problem solving tool. It is a great enabler on our journey to empowered teams. It
delivers solutions that really work and that are owned by varying levels of employees
within the business, often preventing the problems being pushed up or down the
traditional hierarchy. It fuels, in an unequalled way, the building of the trust between
management and factory employees.

threats to these standards
and other risks force
organisations to be
vigilant and proactive.
Yet despite the best efforts
to prevent problems,
things can go wrong.
When a problem, incident

In this NEW 2 day workshop, you will learn how to use incident mapping to bring
clarity needed to gain control of incidents, take the right actions, prevent other
incidents and influence the future in a positive way.
WHO S HOUL D AT T E ND
Anyone who is involved in Incident Management, Problem Management, Accident
Investigation, Issue Resolution, Safety and finding the root causes of problems.
WHAT Y OU WI L L L E AR N
Complex issues that seem impenetrable are usually bound by several closely related
themes. Incident Mapping allows you to systematically unravel and elucidate
complex and impenetrable issues by providing a clear and complete overview of
the full scope of an incident. The result is a visual map of mutual relationships and
interdependencies that provides the basis of a meaningful and creative approach to
finding solutions. Benefits of this program:
Teaches you to create a visual map of an incident that is easily understood and easy
to communicate to others
Helps you to reveal
earlier steps that may
have caused a failure/
incident, not just the last
step
Removes the need for
thick reports when
documenting incidents
Helps you to prevent
recurrence of incidents
Allows you to act swiftly
and effectively when
under pressure
The Incident Mapping process consists of

WOR K S HOP DE S CR I P T I ON
Employees from diverse companies train together to become certified as
instructors. LDIs are held throughout the year for Problem Solving & Decision

Programme Leaders are internal training resources who can tailor the workshop
for different audiences, provide authentic examples and experiences related to the
participants own environment, and update the workshop structure to meet the
needs of the organisation.
Organisations commit a substantial amount of time and resources to the
development of Programme Leaders, who then capitalise on their organisations
investment to achieve tangible results. In essence, they become leaders of the
organisations rational process.
WHO S HOUL D AT T E ND/ P R E R E QUI S I T E
The LDI is a key part of a larger Programme Leader development process that
begins with the identification of qualified candidates and ends with a successful
first teach. To be considered for Programme Leader certification, you must attend
a 3-day (or longer) Problem Solving & Decision Making, Analytic Trouble Shooting,
Resolve or Project Management workshop depending on what workshop you will
be teaching. In addition, all candidates are interviewed by a KT professional and a
representative of your organisation. Final selections are based on pre-set criteria
that include experience and willingness to acquire the skills needed to serve as a
Programme Leader.
