Focus Toolkit

The toolkit introduces a variety of approaches used by the Focus team to identify improvements, solve problems, gain feedback and other techniques. We provide a short guide to get you started, and where applicable share the associated template. Browse the A-Z List of tools or look at a particular project stage to see what tool might help you at a particular time. Focus tools and techniques aim to support continuous improvement and in this spirit the toolkit will evolve and be updated. If you have comments or ideas please get in touch:


'We pointed our Project Managers towards the Focus "5 Why's" tool for problem analysis. It prompted useful discussion. We used it to gain clarity on the root causes of some issues we were encountering on projects. This is one small example of how Focus tools can aid a clearer, crisper understanding to enable sound and reasoned decision making.'
