Presentation Title: “Goldsboro Broken Arrow-When Two Nukes Fell on the U.S.”

Nearly 50 years before the 2009 Academy Award winning film, “The Hurt Locker,” there was the actual 1961 “Goldsboro Broken Arrow.”  Described in the 2011 book of the same name, it describes about the then Lieutenant Jack B. ReVelle’s leadership as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) officer in the locating, de-arming and recovery of two Hydrogen bombs that were accidently dropped from a B-52 while it disintegrated over North Carolina in January 1961.  Jack will describe the eight days he and his 10-man team spent digging for, safing (de-arming), and recovering the explosive and nuclear components of the weapons.

Presentation Speaker: Dr. Jack B. ReVelle

Dr. Jack B. ReVelle resides in Orange County. His professional career includes over a decade in the U.S. Air Force as an EOD officer with two broken arrows (damaged nuclear weapons) to his credit.  This was followed by an assignment to Christmas Island during summer 1962 when he participated in the final series of US nuclear tests in the atmosphere. His later career was spent in aerospace (General Dynamics and Hughes Aircraft), in academia (founding chair of the Decision Sciences Program at the University of Nebraska and founding dean of the School of Business and Management at Chapman University), and as a consulting statistician.

Come join us for an educational presentation on “Goldsboro Broken Arrow-When Two Nukes Fell on the U.S.” at the Temecula Library by Dr. Jack B. ReVelle on September 15, 2016 at 6:00pm

This lively training presentation teaches how to use all six – yes, six! – senses when conducting external conformity assessments or internal QMS audits, in order to maximize the gathering of objective evidence, and to ensure the highest level of confidence in the final audit results.
This eye-opening and invaluable discussion will give even seasoned auditors a new perspective, and will help improve the audit experience not only for clients, but also dramatically reduce problems with Certification Body internal review committees and Accreditation Bodies.
As a clinic participant, you will:
The “angle of perception” used by auditors, and how to expand it using the “missing senses” to soak up evidence like a sponge.
Learn how auditees hide nonconformities in plain view, based on predicted auditor behavior.
Never again have your audit findings challenged because of weak evidence.
