Root Causes take too much time to complete
Root Causes use too many valuable resources
Root causes don't get to the real issues, resulting in recurring problems
Corrective action backlogs continue to grow
Time is robbed from mission critical tasks to deal with recurring issues
Repeat events are causing us to lose our competitive advantage and the trust of the regulators
Root Cause methods require proprietary software and it is costly to buy and maintain the licenses
Root Causes can be completed in less than one week
Subject matter experts are used sparingly
Using the revolutionary BlueDragon Framework we can quickly and accurately identifies the deepest-seated issues
By improving the identification of the real issues, clients can reduce recurring problems and corrective action backlogs
Reducing recurring issues allows more time to be spent on mission critical tasks, a great Return on Investment
Establishing a strong problem solving organization
provides a competitive advantage and gains the trust of regulators
BlueDragon provides all it's templates for free, and there is no proprietary software to purchase and maintain
COMPLEX PROBLEM SOLVING
INTRODUCING NEXT GENERATION
ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS
BlueDragon is a root cause analysis methodology and more...it teaches you life skills that will help you thrive in the age of Artificial Intelligence. The BlueDragon Critical Thinking and Complex Problem Solving Method changes decades-old paradigms and makes root cause analysis more accurate and efficient. The vast majority of BlueDragon root causes take just one week to complete the analysis. Fans of the BlueDragon Method consider it the greatest advancement in causal analysis since Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa introduced his Fishbone diagram at the University of Tokyo in 1943. Let us show you why.
TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION
WE OFFER DYNAMIC WORKSHOPS FOR ALL LEVELS OF EXPERIENCE
BlueDragon workshops are designed using an MBA approach; each new concept is followed by case studies to practice the concepts. Content-rich text books and presentation materials provide students a wealth of information, and the interactive case studies immerse participants in realistic scenarios that gradually increase in difficulty and complexity. Our focus on experiential learning allows participants of all levels to develop proficiency so they can start implementing BlueDragon the very next day. BlueDragon does not require any proprietary software and free templates are provided for most of the tools used in class. Many participants leave us with the feedback that this is the "best training ever!"
WORLD CLASS SUPPORT
WE PROVIDE A FULL RANGE OF CONSULTING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT
DLE Technical Services (the parent company) has been providing consulting and technical support to the commercial nuclear industry, Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories, the Department of Defense and the Nuclear Weapons Complex, and Engineering / Procurement / Constructions companies world-wide. We are often requested to lead independent investigations of the most complex events or adverse trends, help develop or streamline programs and processes, and provide Senior Policy Advisors and Conduct of Operations support. DLE is currently a prime contractor for the DOE Office of Environmental Management.
Let BlueDragon Transform Your Team Into Great Problem-solvers!
DEMYSTIFY ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS
For decades, the many theories put out by a few subject matter experts have resulted in complex concepts and approaches to get to the deepest-seated causes. BlueDragon demystifies root cause analysis and makes it simple for everyone to understand.
SIMPLIFY ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS
The use of multiple, disjointed data and causal analysis tools has created confusion and made root cause analysis more complicated than it needs to be. The BlueDragon Framework simplifies and streamlines root cause and apparent cause investigations.
IDENTIFY THE DEEPEST-SEATED CAUSES
The accepted definitions of a "root cause" have caused many efforts to stop short of identifying the true deepest-seated causes of an event. BlueDragon re-defines "root cause" and uncovers blind spots in identifying the Extent of Cause.
SAVE TIME AND RESOURCES
Traditional root cause analyses take many weeks to complete, often tying up the organization's most valuable subject matter experts. Organizations often lower the significance of events to avoid doing RCA. BlueDragon's Lean and Agile techniques, along with shifting the traditional RCA approach, allows us to complete most RCAs in less than one week with more accurate results.
IMPROVE YOUR CRITICAL THINKING
Critical thinking is a life skill that cannot be replaced by Artificial Intelligence. Sadly, the practical application of critical thinking and complex problem solving are not being taught in most grade schools and colleges, and society is relying too heavily on computers, cell phones and Google to solve our problems. BlueDragon stresses the use of critical thinking tools in complex problem solving.
THE BLUEDRAGON FRAMEWORK
Our BlueDragon Framework is the culmination of decades of experience in leading and facilitating root cause analyses. It integrates time-tested tools with Lean and Agile techniques, resulting in the most efficient method for investigating events and safety incidents. Using the Framework can cut weeks of effort from your investigations.
