Musings: My Blog

Four Times What?

I have a love-hate relationship with news, advertising, etc. messages.  They are so often conjecture, biased, inaccurate, etc.  Given the lack of critical thinking of the average human being it's no wonder so many people are in some sort of financial or other...

Week of Risk

Training with Air Force on Risk Based Quality Audits went great, and as I experienced with the USPS, they are far ahead of many industries in already applying the concepts. Of course, being in Vegas didn't hurt, nor did the opportunity to drive a Nissan GT-R at 137...

An Interesting Perspective on Follow-up Audits

If your organization consistently does follow-up audits related to findings of previous audits you might find this article by the president of the Institute of Internal Auditors useful to peruse.

GRC versus IRM

Oh, This is Comforting (Not!)

"The 737 MAX was certified in accordance with the identical FAA requirements and processes that have governed certification of all previous new airplanes and derivatives," Boeing said.

Boeing 787 Max 8 as Classic Design Error Compounded

Unreal (although perhaps premature, since all the info isn't out). The 787 Max was a bad design.  Placement of the engines on the wings was different, which causes the plane to want to go into a loop when accelerating.  So to compensate they added software to offset...

Digital Infrastructures

Just completed some work with US Postal Service, and boy was I impressed.  They are way ahead of most commercial industry in the digital transformation. And it helped me realize how much work it takes for them to execute their mission as well as they do, day after...

Good Webinar on Poor Risk Assessment Practices

I did a webinar yesterday titled Critical Issues with Risk Assessment and Risk Management.  Then today I watched a webinar offered by the FAIR Institute.  Seemed like an echo!  Here's the link to the free one from Open FAIR ... worth your time if you are serious about...
