The Five Whys is a simple problem-solving technique that helps to get to the root of a problem quickly. The
Five Whys strategy involves looking at any problem and drilling down by asking: "Why?" or "What caused this
problem?" While you want clear and concise answers, you want to avoid answers that are too simple and
overlook important details. Typically, the answer to the first "why" should prompt another "why" and the
answer to the second "why" will prompt another and so on; hence the name Five Whys. This technique can
help you to quickly determine the root cause of a problem. It's simple, and easy to learn and apply.
