Do you really want your firm’s mission-critical tasks to happen without a checklist?
Even the cleverest people use a checklist…
A renowned surgeon was asked by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to come up with an initiative to help save lives in operating theatres all over the world. After looking at a variety of alternatives, a simple checklist, the ‘Surgery Safety Checklist’ became a WHO directive.
Every week this checklist is used in surgical theatres around the world. The checklist prevents missed steps that could cause disaster and has helped save countless lives!
You’d actually think that clever people like Surgeons wouldn’t need a checklist, however the security and confidence that the ‘Surgery Safety Checklist’ has provided has seen unprecedented improvements in surgical results.
Checklists work when you take them seriously, follow them religiously and make the use of them for your firm’s mission-critical tasks an essential and habitual part of your working life.
Using checklists may feel odd and time-consuming to begin with, but only the use of a checklist can guarantee that nothing will be missed.
