How to Prevent Recurrences? Root Cause Analysis

I find that identifying the real root cause and not a symptoms is the best way to prevent recurrences.
Poor root cause analysis or expensive fixes lead us to fix a symptom and that allows for another symptom to cause the recurrence.

How to Prevent Recurrence? Establish Discipline

Fabio, as observed by the previous comments, there are several possible process level approaches to take. However, there is one management level approach that is essential. That is establishing discipline within the organization. No matter what follow up actions are in place to gauge and improve the process, none will work if the environment allows for "distractions" to take priority. And therein lies the (in my opinion) the greatest threat to an effective 8D process.
