The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande

This is such an interesting book, and the results are incredible for something so simple. In an effort to improve conditions in hospital, the experiment was just to introduce a checklist - not just to make sure the steps are ticked off, but to encourage people to think about what they’re doing and also foster a feeling of team camaraderie. Amazing how effective it is, and with examples in the medical industry, as well as aviation and more, it’s a wonder this isn’t shouted about more often.
