BSC video 28: Problem-driven sequencing

Most problems in the public sector are wicked hard and need to be deconstructed before they can be solved. In this video, Matt Andrews, builds upon the maternal mortality example and the ishikawa diagram to illustrate how you can sequence a reform in a contextually sensitive way, by involving the stakeholders to create a strategy that has quick-wins, longer-term solutions and identify areas that will require political feasibility and practical implementation capacity. You can watch the video below or on YouTube.

One thought on “BSC video 28: Problem-driven sequencing

  1. I thought that the problem analysis using Ishikawa diagram and 5 why technique is very Japanese. In fact, Ishikawa diagram was invented by a Japanese researcher and 5 why technique was created by the founder of TOYOTA company. I feel that PDIA concept fits Japanese way of thinking and managing programs/projects.
