I have been struggling with how to keep the improvement momentum going after an audit is conducted; the internal auditing program just seems to run out of gas during the follow-up phase. Cochran’s Verifying Effectiveness checklist will enable me to streamline this phase and guide process owners towards valuable systemic improvement, rather than simple change masquerading as improvement.
My only wish is that a 5th scenario was included in the practice portion that demonstrated compliance. The 4 scenarios presented in the book allow you to practice finding and writing nonconformity statements. However, from audit training, I find that newer auditors have problems determining compliance. This is only a small wish for an otherwise excellent internal auditing resource.
I feel like this book has given me hope again and I'm definitely maturing my wings to soar in the Internal Auditing realm. My book is filled with yellow highlighting. However there isn't much that's NOT important in this book so it's very yellow.
Thank you again for writing this. I finally feel like it's all coming together!
Craig always has the ability to make things simple in an effective manner, just like what he has done in this book on Internal Auditing.
He also has great sense of humor which makes his book fun and easy to read. All Internal Auditors, experienced or new would benefit from this book. It does not only cover the entire logical flow associated with an internal audit, but also provides very practical insights and recommendations of every single step of an internal audit from planning to writing an audit report. With his keen perceptions, Craig has demonstrated in this book that the true purpose of an audit is partnership for improvement instead of uncovering bombshells or getting somebody in trouble. I strongly agree with him on this principal. You will see how he walks you through in this book the processes of internal audits in a candid, genuine and straightforward way, just like coaching a friend.
Craig's new book "Internal Auditing in Plain English" will be our company's training guide and reference in our planned May 2018 transition from our current AS9100 C - ISO 9001-2008 Standard to the AS9100D - ISO 9001-2015 standards. We found this book to have a wealth of well written quality auditing principles, step by step audit exercises and direction on establishing a solid audit program and supported by a robust context built upon real auditing cases.
This is a MUST HAVE!! book for everyone planning to start and audit program and make sure to keep a copy handy by your desk!!
