Housekeeping is about checking, isn’t it? This book provides good reasons why checklists are great and help to handle complexity and ensure standardised processes. Atul Gawande, the author of this book, provides great (mainly medical) examples highlighting how checklists work and ensure that nothing is forgotten. He also highlights that checklists can be used to ensure that users’ brains are not occupied with ‘silly’ things and how checklists enable the same users to be prepared and be able to focus on the important things.
