The 5 Why’s PowerPoint Template

The 5 Why’s PowerPoint Template is a professional presentation created for Root Cause Analysis. It is designed to present the Five Why’s Framework.

The 5 Why’s is an iterative interrogative framework, applied to analyze cause and effect relationships of a particular problem or situation. The main goal of the framework is to determine the root cause of a problem; repeating the question Why? through different dimensions of the problem the analyst drills down into the facts. The name derives from the empirical observation that root cause analysis of a problem ends up with a plausible cause through the fifth iteration. Also, 5 the analysis is bound to 5 steps in order to reformulate the question or dimensions in case a cause is not found after the 5th iteration. It is used as a control variable.

TheĀ 5 Why’s PowerPoint Template provides three (3) set of slides. The first slide is the frameworks working diagram.

The second set of slides is an Icon Decorated set of 5 Horizontal banners. The presenter can mention each question of the analysis i order to provide context to the cause. The third set of slides, generally used to more descriptive presentations, provides a title placeholder where the question is presented and a centered tile where the presenter can textually describe the analysis of the questions. Mainly used for handover or for published materials.
