Tools for Continuous Improvement

The Fishbone Tool helps teams to engage in root cause analysis through visual exploration of the relationship between a problem and its potential causes. By better understanding the underlying factors contributing to a problem and organizing them in a meaningful way, teams can generate useful solutions to a problem.

The Driver Diagram is a tool used to visually represent a team’s working theory of improvement. This visual map is a key collaboration tool for improvement teams because it provides a common language and organizes efforts across many individuals coming together to solve a common problem.

The Empathy Interview Tool outlines a qualitative data collection strategy that uses interviews to understand an experience from the perspective of the interviewee.  Using empathy interviews ensures that the diverse lived experiences of those most impacted are centered in the improvement process.

Measurement Planning Tool - Measurement plans helps teams to answer the question, “how will we know if the change is an improvement?” by continuously using data to inform improvement work.
