Our ex lot used to proscribe the flight control checks in a certain manner.
I always used to randomise it.
Some F/O's would say - you're not doing it in the correct order - I would simply say - say what you see, not what you expect !
The incident in Portugal with reversed controls a couple of years ago - had they used random control checks, they may have picked up the reversed controls.
We used to have a simple A4 two sided laminated check list that was basic Airbus. Then the Managerettes decided that was no longer good enough and insisted we used electronic check lists on the useless HP tablet running buggy Wind*ws 8 that kept crashing. So, as you taxied out, you had to leave the taxi plate to go onto another page that opened up a checklist during one of the critical phases....... Thankfully, it was still printed in the Quick Ref Handbook, which I used and kept the taxi plate up
So glad I am retired......
