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.

  • If you are working in housekeeping and don’t use checklists – read this book to find out why you should.
  • If you are working in housekeeping and are not sure if your checklists work – read this book to indenitfy how to improve them.
  • If you are working in housekeeping and are challenged by others about ‘why do you use check lists?’ – read this book for tons of great arguments!
Product Description
One of the top ten greatest doctors in the world looks at the lowly checklist, and how this simple idea - which is free to reproduce - will revolutionise the way we approach problems, and help save lives. Today we find ourselves in possession of stupendous know-how, which we willingly place in the hands of the most highly skilled people. But avoidable failures are common, and the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of our knowledge has exceeded our ability to consistently deliver it - correctly, safely or efficiently. In this groundbreaking book, Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument for the checklist, which he believes to be the most promising method available in surmounting failure. Whether you're following a recipe, investing millions of dollars in a company or building a skyscraper, the checklist is an essential tool in virtually every area of our lives, and Gawande explains how breaking down complex, high pressure tasks into small steps can radically improve everything from airline safety to heart surgery survival rates. Fascinating and enlightening, "The Checklist Manifesto" shows how the simplest of ideas could transform how we operate in almost any field.
