Good strategy depends critically on knowing root causes. Asking why helps to uncover root causes and takes strategy formulation away from the unconscious repetition of past patterns and mimicry of competitors.

Asking why is a qualitative act. It is different from quantitative analysis, but one gains power from the other. It propels analysis forward by raising new questions to be subjected to rigorous analysis. It takes us beyond the numbers to new answers, new solutions, and new opportunities. It can call into question individuals’ diligence and the basis of their expertise. But it forces fresh thinking on all sides. Asking why leads to new
insights that often yield important competitive advantages.
