    I would intervene by asking if the team has already agreed on the problem and that if it is the real root-cause problem. I will likewise challenge the team and ask what will happen if they continue brainstorming without identifying the real problem.

    Afterwards, I will ask them to write down what they think the problem is and ask again if they have an agreement on the problem. If they have agreed on the problem, I will ask them what is the next step? Who has the next question?
