Description

Acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy to tackle immensely complex problems with the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction and business of all kinds.

The Checklist Manifesto – How to get things right!

I recently read the book ‘The Checklist Manifesto’ by Dr. Atul Gawande. A manifesto? A manifesto by a doctor??? I know answering a question in response to a question is not acceptable!

In this book he has discussed a solution to prevent simple mistakes to handle complexity, A CHECKLIST. Dr....

A must read for everyone

I find this book very useful. Its approach is very simple and straight. The message can be understood by any layman even when the author talks about hospitals and aircraft.

I have found the checklist useful in managing my personal life as well as professional life. It makes you well prepared for any task and any, well almost any, eventuality.

In fact, I would go to the extent of saying that it is much better than the current fad of gloating in multitasking while the time taken for each of y...

It goes on narrating numerous incidents of medical, aviation, construction, banking and businesses domain, all pointing out how checklist saved the day in the end.

By the end o...

Big Things Come in Small Packages

The ‘Checklist Manifesto’ is well written. Atul Gawande’s story-telling is precise. His gripping tales of how checklists have saved lives in operation theatres and airplanes are thought provoking. He hints at how the practice of using checklists could diffuse and benefit other environments as well.

Now, if you are waddling your way through complex tasks on a daily basis or putting something aside because it looks sophisticated there is some telling evidence in Gawande’s book on why you might...
