The Checklist Manifesto

27 May, 2018

Atul Gawande writes about the checklist. Nope, not sexy. But good stories. WHO recently did a study, (Dr Gawande was part of this study), and results were using a checklist in surgery is good. Airplane pilots use check lists.

It was alright, but, if you’re gonna read one book by Dr. Gawande, please read “Being Mortal“.  I feel the information in the book could have been condensed, say, into an NPR interview.

(Note: I do have a couple check lists at work. And, I’m trying to have childrens use checklist for “what to do when I get home from school.” Both of these have varying measures of success.)
