Determining the Relevance of a Problem with an Ishikawa Diagram
Leo van Kampen
I use the fishbone to determine the relevance of a problem. On the upper side of the fishbone I put the positive characteristics (what are the benefits if the problem is solved). On the lower side the negative (what are the cost elements). I rate all characteristic on a scale from 1-5. Also sub branches are rated. Then I divide the positive by the negative. If the fraction is larger then 1 the problem is relevant if it smaller then one the subject is not that relevant. Relevance is translated to prioritizing. If there are no negative elements then the denominator is infinite small and the fraction becomes infinite large. Mostly quick wins. If there are no positive characteristics the numerator becomes infinite small and the fractal will be close to zero. No relevance. (...) Read more? Sign up for free
