Why is it that Internal Audits are forgotten, or even worse feared? Why is it so many organizations of today place so much focus on the creation of Quality Procedures, Work Instructions, Forms, etc. but do not place the same focus on conducting internal audits of the quality system? Is it human nature? We all tend to be "gung-ho" about projects at the start, but the passion, and therefore the quality of the work, so often deteriorates over time.
