Change analysis, also known as Is/Is Not Analysis or KT (Kepner Tregoe) Analytical troubleshooting, is a problem solving method that involves comparing a process that has failed or is performing poorly to one that is operating correctly. This module describes how to conduct a change analysis.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of change analysis
  • List the steps involved with a change analysis
  • Describe how to conduct a change analysis

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is the purpose of change analysis?
Change analysis is a problem solving method that involves comparing a process that has failed or is performing poorly to one that is operating correctly, including the same process during a different period of time.

How is a change analysis performed?
A change analysis involves determining what, where, when, and the extent of the problem and then comparing this information to situations where the problem doesn't exist.

What are some of the questions to ask during a change analysis?
Consider the following questions during a change analysis investigation: What specific object has the deviation, where is the deviation on the object, when was the problem first observed, or how many objects have a defect?

How are possible causes determined?
Brainstorm possible causes based on knowledge and experience, and look for distinctions or changes that have occurred that help explain the is and is-not data.

How is root cause determined?
Evaluate the possible causes and evaluate how well they explain both the is and is-not data.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

A problem can be defined as any scenario in which the expected performance is not being achieved and the cause of this deviation is unknown but needs to be known. Change analysis, also known as Is/Is Not Analysis or KT (Kepner Tregoe) Analytical troubleshooting, is a problem solving method that involves comparing a process that has failed or is performing poorly to one that is operating correctly. This analysis involves comparing different time periods of the same process. The goal is to find what is different between the process that works and the one that doesn't work. Focusing on the differences makes it easier to identify the root cause.

Customer Q&A

I would like to have several employees take multiple courses. How can I set that up?

We're in the process of making bulk course and multiple user purchases easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and contact us with details on who you'd like to assign courses to. We can set up each user's training plan and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

Can I get a free full-length preview of a course to see what this course covers?

While we do our best to offer details on course contents, we don't normally offer full-length previews. But please contact us with more details for a better understanding of what your organizaton needs and how we can help.

Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes. All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of each eLearning course.

How do I log in to take a course that I have already paid for?

You'll receive an email with login details moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course. Just click the login link and enter the user name and password provided.

Do you have courses in different languages?

Yes. While all of our courses are originally produced in English, we develop many courses in a growing number of languages, including Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, and Thai. Available languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
