BD-500: BlueDragon Indoctrination for Managers (LMS)
  • This is our new training course for managers.  It is a self-paced course that is accessed through our BlueDragon Learning Management System (LMS).    

  • This training course is designed for supervisors and managers that have responsibility for overseeing assessments, root cause analysis and lean, six sigma improvement initiatives, as well as executive leadership teams that want to improve their organization's critical thinking and problem-solving cultures.

  • During this course, managers are introduced to the BlueDragon HCA approach: a modern, lean and agile methodology that identifies the deepest-seated causes of the most complex human-centric problems with amazing speed and accuracy. BlueDragon HCA is an invaluable part of Corrective Action and Performance Improvement Programs.

  • The course will highlight many of the new paradigms created by HCA, including how many traditional tools are integrated into one seamless and efficient process, how resources are used as sparingly as possible during the investigations, the importance of management's understanding and support for the HCA methodology, and how Executive Leadership Teams can strengthen their organization’s problem-solving and continuous improvement cultures through the implementation of BlueDragon HCA.

  • The effectiveness of BlueDragon HCA will be highlighted using case studies that include near fatalities, recurring equipment failures, and recurring program failures due to latent organizational and programmatic weaknesses.  Most importantly, we'll discuss how HCA should be used proactively to preemptively identify and address negative performance trends.

  • A Management Checklist for engaging the HCA teams will be provided.
