HCA is for solving human-centric problems that cannot be solved by math and science alone.

Many problems can be solved using Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Thermodynamics, etc.  For those problems, there are Scientists and Engineers (experts in those fields) that can help solve them.  However, human-centric problems are a complex mix of human factors and at-risk behaviors, equipment interface issues, and latent organizational & programmatic weaknesses.  These require expertise in root cause analysis and methodologies such as HCA that were specifically designed for uncovering the deepest-seated causes of human-centric problems in modern socio-technical working environments. 

Hyper-Integrated Causal Analysis (HCA)

is a state-of-the-art, lean, agile, accurate, scalable and cost-effective methodology for solving complex human-centric problems in our modern, socio-technical work environments.  HCA was founded on the principles of critical thinking, systems thinking and high reliability organizations. 

WITH HCA, EVERYONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

HCA is a complex problem-solving methodology that helps your team perform at peak efficiency

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.    

HCA has been adopted at some of the most technically challenging sites in the world

BlueDragon HCA is in use at most of the Department of Energy's National Laboratories and the Nuclear Weapons Complex.  Below is a partial list of our clients and their testimonials.
