Causal Loop
1. Write and encircle the word “poor
quality multigrade class” at the center of
the paper.
2. Identify its causes then write and
encircle each around the main issue.
3. Connect each cause by drawing an
arrow pointing to the main issue.
4. Probe further the identified cause in
terms of causes until you come up with
the root causes.
5. Choose a reporter to present the output.
1. What is the relationship of the
issues written in the circles nearest
to the center?
2. What about the other circles to
other circles connected by arrows
pointing to the latter?
