A convenient description for root cause would include the following three keys:
  1. It directly led to the issue, problem or failure. Taken by itself, this cause can clearly be seen as why things went wrong.
  2. If it had been eliminated or contained nothing bad would have happened. Eliminated or contained means that we should have known about it and planned for it, so something in our system needs to be identified and fixed.
  3. It can be clearly stated. Whatever we think the cause is, we can put it into words that everyone can agree with and understand.
