This workshop awards 6 Professional Development Units (contact hours)

Workshop Highlights

  • This 1-day web-based training course is designed for personnel that are beginning a root cause certification program or would like to develop a strong understanding of root cause and apparent cause analysis fundamentals.

  • The course explains the skills needed to solve problems involving human performance, equipment failures and organizational and programmatic breakdowns. 

  • Participants are introduced to our modern and revolutionary BlueDragon Hyper-integrated Causal Analysis approach, which allows us to complete even the most complex root cause analyses with amazing speed and accuracy. 

  • The workshops are typically held from 8am until 4pm EST with a 1-hour lunch break.

  • Classes coincide with Day 1 of our 4-day workshops, BD-201E. 

What is Covered in the 1-day Workshop

Given a course of instruction, prospective root cause practitioners will be able to:

  • Understand the regulations (laws) that require root cause analysis.

  • Understand the complex, human-centric problems that cannot be solved by math and science alone.

  • Understand basic terms and definitions used in the problem-solving process.

  • Understand the fundamentals of Critical Thinking and its importance in the problem-solving process.

  • Understand the universal approach to solving problems and the graded approach to causal analysis.

  • Understand the fundamentals of Cause & Effect Analysis.

  • Understand the construct of the BlueDragon Framework and its ties to the Anatomy of an Event.

  • Understand BlueDragon’s Hyper-Integrated Causal Analysis (HCA).  

Virtual Platforms / Requirements

  • Virtual workshops are conducted in Zoom or WebEx.  In addition, you will be introduced to Mural, a powerful and easy to use virtual whiteboard.  These two platforms have made it possible to deliver virtual classes with the same or better results than live workshops. 

  • The use of Mural, our virtual whiteboard, has made it much easier to conduct assessments, investigations and root cause analysis when we cannot conduct meetings in person. 

  • Prior to the start of class, you will be provided pre-workshop instructions on how to use Zoom/WebEx, and a link to a practice Mural so you can get acquainted with the virtual whiteboard.   

  • Because this is an all virtual workshop, participants are required to have a webcam and microphone and be able to access Zoom/WebEx and Mural through the internet. 

  • Internet download speeds greater than 30 Mbps are highly recommended.
