5 Whys & Fishbone Diagram Training & Certificate
Learn the basics of the 5 Whys & Fishbone Diagram and build your problem-solving muscles.
What Are the 5 Whys?
5 Whys is a simple but effective method of analyzing and solving problems by asking “why” five times, or as many times as needed, in order to move past symptoms and determine root cause. This approach is used in tandem with Cause & Effect or Fishbone diagrams.
What Is a Fishbone (Cause & Effect) Diagram?
The Fishbone (or Cause & Effect) Diagram is a structured brainstorming tool designed to assist an improvement team in listing potential causes of a specific effect. Its name derives from its resemblance to the bones of a fish. It is also known as an Ishikawa Diagram, for its creator. This tool is used in tandem with The 5 Whys.

Good refresher on the 5 why and fishbone
Very good module.
The information is ok. But the presenter is coughing and throat clearing way too often for a professional training video.
Fun and challenging at the same time. I'll be teaching other managers this week so they can begin problem solving.
A great introduction to the fishbone diagram and when and how to use it. The course takes you through the 5 whys through the brainstorming process, forming your hypothesis and finally collecting metrics to help identify root causes.
It is a good way to learn how to use the fish diagram and what may be your next steps
This is a simple way to get past confusion regarding affinity analysis, Fishbone Analysis and the 5 whys. The fun examples make remembering the process easy.
Shares information well with good examples, exams make you think but are pretty clear.
A great way to get a refresher on the Fishbone Diagram! Having access to templates makes it easier to put in place for all project work.
Pretty good refresher - made me think a bit more from what I've read going into the training .. which helps reinforce by hearing it explained in a different light / perspective.
