YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH LESS THAN EFFECTIVE ROOT  CAUSE AND CORRECTIVE ACTION PROGRAMS 

Recurring problems and growing corrective action backlogs waste time, energy and resources.

You have better things to do with your resources, like focusing on mission-critical tasks.

WITH BLUEDRAGON:

You'll be able to complete RCAs in as little as one week with minimal subject matter expert involvement, saving your organization time & resources.

You'll be able to identify the deepest-seated root causes and contributing factors quickly and accurately, and recommend effective actions.

You'll help the organization address the real issues, stop recurring events, and reduce your corrective action backlogs.

BlueDragon is in use at most of the Department of Energy's National Laboratories and the Nuclear Weapons Complex.  If it's good enough for Rocket Scientists...

Most of our clients are constantly wasting time and money dealing with nagging problems and recurring events. What we do at BlueDragon is to teach you how to quickly and efficiently find and address the true root causes of your problems, so you can keep them from happening again and get back to your mission critical tasks.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON ISSUES OUR CLIENTS FACE

There are too many causal and data analysis methods and techniques to learn, it's unclear which tools to use and when to use them, and it's difficult to combine the results of all the different tools at the end.

Root Cause Analysts lack the training and skills to think critically and uncover the true root cause analysis. 

 

Root Causes take too much time to complete...sometimes many weeks and months.

 

Root Causes tie up too many of our valuable resources, including our best subject matter experts.

 

Root causes don't get to the real issues, so the corrective actions do not prevent recurring problems.

 

Management lacks understanding of root cause concepts and often implement corrective actions before a thorough analysis.

 

Corrective action backlogs continue to grow because so many issues are not adequately solved the first time. 

 

Time spent documenting, evaluating and addressing recurring issues is time robbed from mission critical tasks.

 

Repeat events are causing our teams to lose the trust of our regulators and overseers, which can result in a loss of competitive advantage on future contracts. 

 

Root Cause methods are expensive because they require proprietary software and it is costly to buy and maintain the annual licenses.

WITH THE BLUEDRAGON RCA METHOD, OUR CLIENTS EASILY OVERCOME THOSE CHALLENGES

The BlueDragon Framework integrates the tools you need to get to the root causes in an easy to follow format, eliminating the frustration of what tools to use and when to use them.

 

Root Cause Analysts will develop into professional problem solvers, think more critically and consistently identify the true root causes. 

BlueDragon Root Cause Analyses can be completed in less than one week (depending on the level of management support).

 

Subject matter experts are typically impacted for a few hours and can return to their mission critical tasks.

Using the revolutionary BlueDragon Framework, Analysts can quickly and accurately identify the deepest-seated issues.

 

BlueDragon Manager Indoctrination Training sensitizes managers so they appreciate and support the Causal Analysts. 

The BlueDragon Framework identifies the real issues, resulting in more effective corrective actions and less recurring problems.

Using BlueDragon reduces recurring issues, allowing more time to be spent on mission critical tasks; a great return on investment. 

BlueDragon creates a strong problem solving organization, which can improve client-regulator relationships and result in a competitive advantage when bidding on contracts. 

BlueDragon provides all of its templates for free; there is no proprietary software to purchase and no annual licenses to maintain. 

FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS AND WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS IS OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY

"Best training ever!  You've given me an exponential leg up with the BlueDragon Framework.  I think your method will revolutionize the industry!"

- February 2020

"I am recommending for implementation at TVA-Nuclear.  This is the most practical and effective tool I have seen. "

- February 2020

In 2017, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) adopted BlueDragon as an integral part of Contractor Assurance (CAS).  

 

“The CAS program has transformed our culture, aggressively addressing weaknesses and identifying issues, being self-critical and developing meaningful corrective actions.

  • CAS has driven substantial performance improvement; it is identifying issues and has avoided major events.

  • Numerous external reviews (EA31, EA22, EA33, INPO, VPP, L&A, BOD CAS Sub-Committee) have validated strong engagement as a result of CAS.”

SRNS President and CEO 

 

Speaking at the Oct 2019 BlueDragon User's Group Meeting (Pictured here with Rob, BlueDragon's creator)

“Through our implementation of the BlueDragon methodology, CNS is achieving a very positive culture change at our plants by providing a consistent and effective set of tools to managers to aid them in the identification of true root causes."
