  • "I found myself very challenged.  Blue Dragon is very effective and more concise than any RCA system I have seen before.”

  • "We have had a severe need for this (BlueDragon) for some time.  It is the most effective and most integrated system I have seen.” 

  • "I like the fact that you (Rob) tempered all the material and case studies by asking us to put common sense and reason first.  I also like the great flexibility of the BlueDragon approach.”

  • "Even though I am new at this, your teaching method made me feel like I was on the same page throughout the past three days.”  (Youngest participant) 

  • "On day one, I honestly struggled a bit in getting on board.  I was bogged down with past methods I had been exposed to, but you quickly helped me break through all that and saw BlueDragon's utility.”  (Most senior participant and ex-Navy Nuclear Submarine Officer) 

  • "I really enjoyed the emphasis on "practical exercises" than just going by the book.” 

  • "I never had a simple formula to  RCA like BlueDragon offers up.  I feel very enriched.”

  • "I have been with my company a long time.  I always thought we needed something like this."  

  • "I really enjoyed your teaching style.  You made me feel comfortable and allowed us to be ourselves.  You are easy going and personable and that helps you to be an effective instructor.”

  • “I can’t wait to start using some of these BlueDragon tools.”

“On behalf of Fluor B&W Ports, I would like to offer my personal thanks for teaching your DLE Root Cause and Event Investigation course at our Piketon, OH training facilities… We sent a wide cross section of our personnel to attend the training, including managers, operators, mechanics and safety representatives, and the feedback we received has been extremely positive. You did an outstanding job of helping our personnel understand the fundamentals of causal analysis that will help us create an excellent problem solving organization. Your material was top notch and your subject matter expertise and delivery of the course content were way above average. Again, I thank you for providing excellent training that has contributed to improving our problem solving culture at Fluor B&W Portsmouth.”

The BlueDragon Root Cause workshops you provided at both [DUF6] sites were extremely well received by our staff as well as the DOE and their Technical

Support representatives in attendance. It increased our ability to discern and dissect our problems, and provided an important addition to the UDS “toolbox”. By more effectively identifying the causes of our issues and events we were able to target our Corrective Actions to mitigate recurrence and improve our overall performanceYour understanding and use of the BlueDragon root cause method is best-in-class and on behalf of UDS and myself, I extend my sincerest
