Our Community of Practice
Monthly meetings to share, learn and network with our peers
BlueDragon Forums are free to all former students and are a great way to meet and network with our Community of Practice.
BlueDragon IPS students are automatically invited to be a part of our Community of Practitioners, where we can:
BlueDragon Forum meetings are held online every month except December. During these 90 minute sessions, managers, IPS practitioners and distinguished guests share lessons learned through presentations and group discussions on topics that are important to BlueDragon IPS users. These include IPS investigations and lessons learned, and topics of interest such as how to conduct investigations in an all-virtual environment.
Attendees bring a wealth of knowledge from the perspectives of practitioners at the National Laboratories, the nuclear weapons complex and other BlueDragon clients. There are also breakout sessions on selected topics of interest that you can participate in. In addition, Rob, BlueDragon’s creator, usually provides an update on the latest IPS tools and techniques.
Monthly Forums are attended by practitioners from client organizations ranging from staff all the way up to the CEO. These meetings present the opportunity to meet and exchange contact information with industry peers and subject matter experts. During the meetings, we seek to put coalitions in place to work together on problems as we often find that we are trying to solve similar problems at the different sites.
Here you will find PDFs of Case Study Answer Keys, as well as our most widely used IPS templates, along with reference documents from the Department of Energy (DOE), the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
