I have found the Ishikawa diagram helpful in understanding root causes and what elements affect my result. To understand how organizational environments, people, resources, processes, equipment, and measures impact performance, the Ishikawa Diagram requires extensive brainstorming (ASQ, 2002). The 5W-1H Questioning Model is essential for effective brainstorming. It asks the following questions: Why, Where, Which, When, and How to Determine the Underlying Issues that Prevent Objectiveness. The ability to identify the root causes allows for objective solutions. One option is to conduct group-building activities in order to increase interpersonal relationships among members of the team. Conflict among employees reduces synergy and causes members to fall back on stereotypes and preconceptions when they interact with each other. Workers can overcome barriers and avoid formalities that hinder open communication by using teambuilding exercises.
To disengage individuals from their problems, it is essential to first identify the root cause. The Ishikawa Diagram allows institutions to understand the causes of problems and how they relate to each other. The second phase is to analyze people’s interests and how those interests impact their objective engagement with their coworkers (Kinicki & Fugate, 2020). The next stage is to identify, assess, and choose options for solving the problem. Team members can decide to use competence training, team building or incentives as a way of resolving the conflict. Only one solution is chosen that has high strategic goals and viability. The selection of the best solution is made after identifying shared goals and analyzing implementation strategies. This is the last stage, where parties come to an agreement and agree to cooperate objectively. Employing the Ishikawa Cause & Effect method to analyze how the organization can make operational improvements and determine what elements caused conflict (Morden 2016, Morden). This diagram from Ishikawa will allow the company to evaluate decreased cooperation at both management and employee levels.
