During my last work term at company XYZ, I was part of the technical support team. One of my daily duties was providing customers with technical support through mail and phone. When customers sent emails to our technical support email address it would be forwarded to several parties. Emails were forwarded to the technical support team at the headquarters, the technical support team in Asia, the CEO and the operations manager. Emails were forwarded in this manner so that the quality and response time of the technical support emails could be monitored by the administration. The nature of most issues were complicated; as a result several emails were send back and forth before the issue could be pinpointed and diagnosed. Since the emails were delivered to half a dozen inboxes, there was often confusion over who needed to respond to which emails. Although there had been many attempts to address this issue they all failed. There was not a solution that would work all the time because employees would not be available due to sickness, holidays, emergencies etc. The goal of the process is to provide customers with the highest quality of service.

In addtion, it allows the company to uphold quality standard. The main challenge is choosing a member of the administrative team who is familiar with company goals and technical support issues. In order to implement the RCA described above, there is one additional resource needed. The most important artifact is creating a document that will outline the technical support standard that company XYZ wants to upkeep. This document must be detailed and should include answers to common problems. This document will allow the supervisor and the technical support team to respond to emails confidently.
