The Checklist Manifesto

Enhanced by Zemanta

Checklists are most related to grocery or shopping lists for the most of us. After reading this book, you’ll be certain that you need a checklist for everything you do in life. This book is life changing, and shows you the wonders of what a well designed and perfectly executed checklist can do. It doesn’t talk about executing mundane tasks. The author, Autul Gawande is a Surgeon widely know as an expert for improving safety and reducing errors in surgeries and medical procedures. His secret, the checklists, was borrowed from the aviation business, where it is been successfully and widely used  for several decades already.

Atul presents studies proving huge improvements in safety and error reduction where checklists were implemented, and he goes further to prove that it can be used anywhere in the world, in any hospital regardless of financial or material condition to significantly reduce casualities and improve procedures efficiency.

This book will certainly change the way you think of medicine and life. It changed mine. Unfortunately, checklists are nowhere near the widespread usage we enjoy in aviation. Fortunately, this is already starting to change. Highly recommend if you deal with complex and repetitive procedures that are prone to human errors and oversights.
