The Five Whys is a simple and effective technique for root cause analysis that was developed by famous Japanese inventor Sakichi Toyoda and is frequently referenced in the Six Sigma curriculum. The exercise involves defining a problem and then questioning it repeatedly in order to uncover what’s driving it at its core.

Asking why five times provides the root cause of our goal or desire.

We’ve now tackled “the why” and “the what” behind our goals which means we can officially move onto “the how”.
