Amazon link: The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right
I recently finished The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right. It’s not an in-depth how-to book on creating checklists, but it does contain insights on how checklists are used in field like construction, aviation, and surgeries.
My favorite quote:
Good checklists, on the other hand, are precise. They are efficient, to the point, and easy to use even in the most difficult situations. They do not try to spell out everything—a checklist cannot fly a plane. Instead, they provide reminders of only the most critical and important steps—the ones that even the highly skilled professionals using them could miss. Good checklists are, above all, practical.
