“Is it really possible that a low-tech-actually no-tech-simple list can change and influence outcomes in our high-tech, super-complex world? The answer is a resounding YES! And in his latest book, The Checklist Manifesto, straightforwardly narrated by John Bedford Lloyd, Atul Gawande-one of those wonderfully multitalented men who is a surgeon, New Yorker staff writer and MacArthur Fellow-explains why and how a "stupid little list" can help even the most highly skilled and trained avoid failure and achieve consistent success.”
But the truth is, when we were first building Process Street I had not read The Checklist Manifesto. It was purely a product I was building to solve my own needs. Only once we had launched, one of our users suggested that I take a look at the book and I instantly fell in love with Atul’s teachings.
A publisher releases a censored "Huckleberry Finn," the GOP searches for a new RNC chair, and Atul Gawande discusses his book "The Checklist Manifesto."
