☑️ The Checklist Manifesto - Shortform

This weeks summary to read was The Checklist Manifesto. 

I am in the process of writing everyday checklists. 

"But while training and experience are important, expertise can’t eliminate human fallibility. What’s needed is a different strategy for preventing failure that takes advantage of knowledge and experience but also compensates for human flaws. The solution is a checklist." - The Checklist Manifesto on Shortform
"In complex environments, checklists can help to prevent failure by addressing two problems:

1. Our memory and attention to detail fail when we’re distracted by more urgent matters.
2. People have a tendency to skip steps even when they remember them." - The Checklist Manifesto on Shortform
"Boeing’s flight deck designer, Daniel Boorman, is an expert on checklists. Before creating a checklist, he recommends two things:
1) Define a clear ‘“pause point” or logical break in the workflow at which the checklist is to be used.
2) Decide whether to create a Do-Confirm list or a Read-Do list." - The Checklist Manifesto on Shortform

Have a great week! 🌱
