Inhaltsangabe

The New York Times best-selling author of Better and Complications reveals the surprising power of the ordinary checklist.

We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies - neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple 90-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third.

In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds.

An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential for anyone working to get things right.

Erfüllt nicht die Erwartungen

Das Buch widmet sich viel zu ausführlich der Einführung der Checklisten im medizinischen Bereich. Einzelne Anwendungen außerhalb der Medizin werden angerissen, jedoch nur sehr exemplarisch. Übertragung auf den eigenen Aktivitätsbereich bleibt dem Hörer zur Gänze überlassen. Von etwas, dass ich als Manifest versteht erwartet man da mehr. Zudem erinnert die Audioqualität an alte Musikkassetten.

Should be required reading in school

Fantastic book about the power of checklists. Terrifying stories of plane crashes and surgical problems underpin the necessity of taking checklists seriously. Should be required reading in school.

Great motivation for using check lists. Lots of ex

Great motivation for using checklists. Lots of experience reports. Good story of how the author himself was motivated to try out and use checklists.
From the title "manifesto" I expected some more insights and guidelines for creating those. Those insights are there, but somehow scattered. A concluding checklist on how to do checklists would have been an amazing final chapter.
So 1 star less for the (as I find it) misleading title. I recommend it even more though as it is not only a technical introduction but has a compelling story.

Essential!

This is a very interesting view on our professions as a whole and maybe something we all could or should build and improve upon. It was also surprisingly entertaining with all the interesting real world examples. Highly recommended!

Great way to learn from other fields of business.

I found it interesting to understand how processes are structured in other lines of business and understand what can be applied in your own industry and/or specific business.
