How-To Guides

I enjoy analysing informal processes and trying to formalise them. I often try to write my analyses down in the form of guidelines for doing the task. Over the course of my career I seem to have accumulated quite a collection of these `how to' guides. Some of these have been written on my own and some with the help of others. People sometimes ask me for copies of these, so I thought it might be useful to collect them together in one place.

You are welcome to use these guides in whatever way you feel helpful. The only conditions are: please acknowledge the original author(s); please do not sell them at a profit (but covering your reproduction costs is fine).

If you have any comments on these guides or suggestions on how they can be improved then please email me at
