For book thirty six of 2015, I enjoyed The Checklist Manifesto.
Exceptional book and perfect read for all those that do things over and over and expect different results (read – insanity). Seriously, in The Checklist Manifesto there are so many applications and instances where my current organization has not invested the time to create and enforce a stringent process for routine procedures that there are drastic areas of application for this book.
The biggest irony while reading this book was the aviation and medical examples that we have invested and proven that we can be successful with. That through implementing, educating, and training to checklists in these fields it is difficult to understand why these processes haven’t developed in less mature areas of the organization. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to make some changes…
One of the best books I’ve enjoyed this year!
