Learn how Diagnostic Techniques would have helped the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) uncover what was causing people to die in Navajo territory.

People were dying and no one knew why. This case study shows how Exploration Techniques and Diagnostic Techniques including Cluster Brainstorming, Starbursting, Key Assumptions Check, and Analysis of Competing Hypotheses could have been used to help unravel the mystery.
