This lecture details many disturbing examples of poor or inadequate documentation, but provides key points to assist and prevent such issues arising int he future. A very timely reminder of the importance of the seemingly mundane 'report'.

The educator frequently referred to slides that were off screen and not always added to the screen which made it a bit disappointing.
