Accurately Identify What's Actually Causing Your Problems
Stop Recurring Events and Reduce Corrective Action Backlogs
Return Wasted Time and Money to Mission Critical Tasks
WHICH TYPE OF COMPLEX PROBLEMS DOES BLUEDRAGON SOLVE?
BlueDragon was designed to solve the kind of complex problems that involve humans and organizations and their interface with the world around them. These require a different skill set than the standard sciences...Root Cause Analysis (RCA) skills that almost anyone can learn and master.
IS YOUR TEAM EXPERIENCING RECURRING EVENTS, GROWING CORRECTIVE ACTION BACKLOGS AND WASTING TIME AND MONEY ON NON-MISSION CRITICAL TASKS?
YOUR ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS PROGRAM DOESN'T WORK!
You don't have to live with less than effective Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Programs. Many of the RCA tools and methodologies in use today have been around since the 1970s and have not evolved with modern times. Traditional methods are less than effective at quickly and accurately identifying the deepest-seated causes and do not prevent recurring events. You end up spending time and money on a growing list of corrective actions and not on the mission.

MASTER THE CRAFT
Become a BlueDragon practitioner and be recognized as a critical thinker and problem solver.
Stop recurring events, lower corrective action backlogs and spend more time on mission-critical tasks.
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 spending extra 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 HCA APPROACH,
WE HELP YOU 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.

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

Before 2017, the Savannah River National Laboratory experienced recurring problems and was even shut down for a long period of time. In 2017, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) established an initiative to strengthen its Contractor Assurance (CAS) Program and adopted BlueDragon Critical Thinking and Complex Problem Solving as the preferred root cause methodology to investigate its serious problems.
“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.”

“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."
