The Power of Process Auditing
The  Power of Process Auditing video shows how the auditor:
  • Integrates information from multiple sources
  • Identifies key process performance issues
  • Uses a combination of interview and observation skills to gather the information and evidence required.
The Power of Process Auditing effectively delivers a wealth of valuable information in a very short time and in a structured way that holds the viewers' attention. The video will facilitate the development of auditor skills at all levels from beginners to experienced auditors.

NEW BOOK - Nightmare Pipeline Failures: Fantasy Planning, Black Swans and Integrity Management
 This book is about the human and organisational causes of two accidents; the catastrophic 2010 San Francisco pipeline rupture that resulted in the deaths of eight people, and the pipeline rupture in the state of Michigan that released vast quantities of oily sludge into a local river system. The clean-up cost the pipeline owner a billion dollars, making it the most expensive pipeline oil spill in US history. The authors identify the lessons to be learned and suggest ways that such accidents can be prevented.
