Basic corrective action

Basic corrective action that looks at how and why performance deviated before correcting the source of deviation. It’s not unusual for managers to rationalize that they don’t have time to find the source of a problem (basic corrective action) and continue to perpetually “put out fires” with immediate corrective action.
