Book review: The Checklist Manifesto

The Checklist Manifesto, by Atul Gawande is, no doubt, an interesting book. However, it could be condensed in no more than ten pages.

From my point of view, there are two great stories inside the book:
  • Management story about how the checklists can be used at many other business areas, beside piloting.
  • Medical story about improving surgery and clinical treatment with very simple and cheap actions i.e. just with checklist.
Therefore, you can extract an obvious conclusion from the book:  every discipline should review its processes to take advantage of  checklist.

So yeah, it is recommendable!
