less than 3.3 is on checklists and standard procedures,
00:06
checklists
00:08
and standard procedures convey. Be a very challenging, very problematic thing as an expert,
00:16
because if you deviate from the checklist or the procedure for even for defensible reasons, you may cause yourself
00:25
more pain and more questions than is necessary. So in this module, we're gonna talk about the use of checklists and standard procedures,
00:34
the value of checklists and standard procedures. They provide consistency.
00:39
They avoid miss processes, and they allow for repeat ability.
00:42
It's really easy to remember what you need to dio if you've got a checklist. That's why auditors use them all the time.
00:50
If you have a standard procedure, you're always doing the same thing, and that makes it
00:55
or repeatable
00:57
and easier for another examiner to come in and pick up where you left off,
01:03
or to review what you've done and see how you did it and follow that same process to completion. So checklists and standard procedures add to the reliability of data.
01:18
However,
01:19
checklists
01:21
can often lead to a lack of flexibility or adaptability.
01:25
If it's not on the checklist, it's not there, and it can't be added
01:30
so it makes it a little harder. Or if it's added, then the question is, why wasn't it on the checklist
01:36
from the beginning?
01:38
That into that extent, it can become a problem when deviations air needed? Because now you've got to explain why your checklist didn't already include
01:48
that item,
01:49
why you had to deviate. And now you're spending all of your time talking about process
01:55
and form over function
01:57
and
01:59
checklists and
02:00
standard procedures sometimes can often include predetermined biases.
02:07
Um, we're always going to do it this way, because that's how we've always done it.
02:10
But that may lead to different results.
02:15
In this video, we discussed the use of checklists and standard procedures and why it's questionable why you may wanna be careful using checklists and standard procedures.
