METHODOLOGY

TRADITIONAL PROBLEM SOLVING METHODS IN USE TODAY ACROSS MOST INDUSTRIES SUCH AS ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS ARE INEFFICIENT
AND LESS EFFECTIVE
THAN WE THOUGHT

OUR SOLUTION:

BlueDragon has re-designed how complex problems are solved, taking into account 21st century advancements and a better understanding of human-centric problems and the socio-technical environments that we work in.

Approach

HCA integrates the best features of traditional problem solving tools and techniques, and dramatically reduces the time to complete the analysis. 

The result:

HCA is the most advanced methodology on the planet for solving complex, human-centric problems in our modern socio-technical work environments!

HCA provides leaders with critical thinking and problem-solving skills; human skills that will help leaders thrive in the age of Artificial Intelligence!

BECOME A MORE EFFECTIVE LEADER

Effective leadership is essential for any business to thrive. One of the more important leadership traits is the ability to critically analyze situations and lead problem-solving efforts. HCA helps create strong problem-solving management teams that solve complex, human-centric problems, and drive down recurring events and significant event investigation backlogs. HCA's foundations includes Critical Thinking, Systems Thinking and the 5 principles of High Reliability Organizations and should be part of any Management & Leadership Development Training.

RECOVER LOST TIME

The inability to solve complex, human-centric problems in a timely manner is one of the main reasons organizations experience recurring events and significant event investigation backlogs. Traditional root cause analysis and investigation methods can take as much as 6 months or more for significant events or problems.  HCA is extremely efficient; most significant investigations are completed in under 6 weeks. Most clients find a significant Return on Investment (ROI) just on the time savings associated with completing root cause and other assessments and investigations.

RECOVER LOST REVENUE

Saving and recovering revenue is one of the primary reasons organizations are seeking out BlueDragon HCA training and problem-solving services. Learn how HCA can be used proactively to evaluate vulnerable programs and processes, as well as to identify the causes of poor performance and to build a case for recovering the funds due to an underperforming contractor. One government agency used an HCA Comprehensive Investigation to identify the causes of a poor performing contractor and to seek reimbursement of over $100 million dollars.
