Causal reasoning is an element of the causal learning process. The purpose of this seminar/workshop is to familiarize attendees with causal reasoning and help them understand how situations should be approached and analyzed through this methodology.  The course will also acquaint attendees with the difference between causal- and other types of reasoning. Upon completion of this workshop, they will be able to apply causal reasoning in the context of incident investigation, to identify performance and reliability issues and to conduct problem solving through causal analysis approach.

 

The seminar is structured along the following sections:
  • Reasoning Orientations & Definitions
  • The “lenses-analogy”: Differences among Solution -, Defensive -, and Causal Reasoning
  • Applicability of the various types in an incident example
  • Methodology to be followed during Causal Reasoning – Advantages and Disadvantages
  • Causal Reasoning and Human Factors
  • Practical Case #1
  • Discussion on Case #1 – Applicability of lessons learnt through the cooperation of all concerned
  • Practical Case #2
  • Discussion on Case #2 – Applicability of lessons learnt through the cooperation of all concerned
