The power of ‘five whys’ is strikingly illustrated by an example adapted from Valerie Iles and Kim Sutherland’s Organisational Change, where a lapse in patient care could be traced back to a decision about the organization’s core strategy: Bedpan not received by patient.

OODA Loop. The process of monitoring and controlling a project involves looking at the forces affecting the project, attempting to understand the causes and responding appropriately. One approach increasingly used in projects is known as the OODA Loop.
O = Observe. What is happening that may affect the project now or in the future?
O = Orient. How should the project’s orientation in the wider environment affect your decisions?
D = Decide. What conclusions does this lead to?
A = Act. How will you turn your decisions into action?

Forming – an initial ‘honeymoon’ period, with team roles and purpose as not yet defined.
Storming – jostling for position, with clarity of purpose unlikely, but team roles not fully defined.
Norming – mutual trust and confidence grow; the beginnings of shared leadership emerge.
Performing – a high level of mutual understanding means that the team is now significantly greater than the sum of its parts.
