Dr. Atul Gawande On Using Checklists

Dr. Atul Gawande wrote The Checklist Manifesto.  Here’s a video of him on the Colbert Report talking about using lists.

Do you use checklists?

I do. I’m a big believer in the fact that they help you organize your thoughts. I also believe that in today’s day and age with all the information coming at us and the pace of change that you need to use a list to optimize on the best practice. I recently gave my team a checklist of things to do each week. It’s basically what I think about on each Friday to make sure I can wrap up the week and that I’m prepared for the next week.
