Rob De La Espriella

Rob De La Espriella is a former nuclear submarine officer and one of the leading experts in root cause analysis (RCA) in regulated industries. His 30+ years of experience spans the commercial nuclear power industry, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense (DOD). Rob is the creator of the BlueDragon Hyper-Integrated Causal Analysis (HCA) methodology, a next-generation, innovative, lean and agile approach to RCA that revolutionizes many RCA paradigms. Anchored by critical thinking; HCA accurately and efficiently identifies the deepest-seated causes of complex, human centric problems in our modern-day socio-technical systems; problems that cannot be solved by math and science.  These types of problems cost regulated industries $Trillions of dollars per year.    

Rob currently teaches BlueDragon HCA at the US National Laboratories and the nuclear weapons complex and is a recurring guest lecturer at Princeton University’s Keller Center for Entrepreneurship, teaching critical thinking tools and techniques to their Design Thinking teams each of the past five summers.
