Checklists are more important than one would think. When used right they can decentralize control, giving more autonomy to everyone in the organization, and improve the quality and efficiency of a process. This is this whole book boiled down to two sentences.

The book doesn't give more details or directions than the initial article it is based on. Instead, it presents a multitude of anecdotes and some statistics to prove the point. If you enjoy reading fascinating stories (mostly from the operating rooms) that build the tension and lead to interesting reveals - add 2 stars to my rating.

The stories are well written and each by itself is fine. However, as a collection, they become a bit repetitive and boring - each of them proves pretty much the same thing or has such a loose connection to the main subject that makes you wonder why it is included in this book. I was missing a stronger narrative that would connect them meaningfully. You can basically read chapters in random order and get the same value. ( )

My first book from Atul Gawande and will most certainly not be the last. His storytelling is powerful. The various fields and live examples he goes into to drive the point home are immensely compelling. I am an events professional by trade and will most certainly be implementing checklists into my work life after this read. I hope I can do it justice. ( )

I learned that checklists are important and helpful in some situations and I will be using more of them in the future. I shied away from them before. However, I don't have time to read his stories of checklist usage and research, so I scanned heavily after the first 40 pages. I would have preferred to just read a short blog on this topic instead of an entire book, but how do you know until you try? ( )

Every once in a while you run across a book that makes you think, "Why aren't we doing this? Or why aren't we doing this more?" The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right* by Atul Gawande is such a book. Gawande is a doctor on a mission, he wants to save lives. Gawande is looking for a solution to prevent simple mistakes as well as handle complexity. He advocates for the use of checklists as an organization and pre-planning tool. It is better to work out the issues before they are needed in an emergency. However, as Gawande points out, checklists are not only for medical emergency situations but also for routine tasks. Systems and processes have become complex enough that it is difficult for one person to keep track of all the steps in memory. Read more ( )

I already know that "The Checklist Manifesto" will be on my list of best books this year. Gawande writes with gusto, humor and clarity. He features his mistakes -- always a good sign in a reporter -- including the one that ends the book.

Read this book and you might find yourself making checklists for the most mundane tasks—and be better off for it.
adicionada por stephmo | editarBusiness Week, Catherine Arnst (Feb 10, 2010)
 
But that narrative gift doesn't transfer automatically to accounts of in-flight safety checks and structural engineering near-misses. Gawande's style is always clear, with the crispy lilt that is a trademark of the New Yorker, where he is also a staff writer. But there's no escaping the fact that this is a book about, well, checklists. Hemingway would struggle to make it gripping. Gawande does well to pull off engaging.

Gawande, a professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School and a staff writer at The New Yorker, makes the case that checklists can help us manage the extreme complexity of the modern world. In medicine, he writes, the problem is “making sure we apply the knowledge we have consistently and correctly.” Failure, he argues, results not so much from ignorance (not knowing enough about what works) as from ineptitude (not properly applying what we know works).

Dr. Gawande is right to note that checklists are indispensable in situations where a small mistake can lead to tragic consequences, as in surgery. But his call for a broad checklist regime would be counterproductive—fraught with all the dangers of bureaucracy and excessive law.

Introduction
I was chatting with a medical school friend of mine who is now a general surgeon in San Francisco.
Some time ago I read a case report in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

Faulty memory and distraction are a particular danger in what engineers call all-or-none processes: whether running to the store to buy ingredients for a cake, preparing an airplane for takeoff, or evaluating a sick person in the hospital, if you miss just one key thing, you might as well not have made the effort at all.
...the real lesson is that under conditions of true complexity—where knowledge required exceeds that of any individual and unpredictably reigns—efforts to dictate every step from the center will fail. People need room to act and adapt. Yet they cannot succeed as isolated individuals, either—that is anarchy. Instead, they require a seemingly contradictory mix of freedom and expectation—expectation to coordinate, for example, and also to measure progress toward common goals.
