Check. List.

McLeod Governance has a great fondness for the New Yorker magazine.

Not only does it make us feel smarter reading it – no small task – but it takes us to places and events that we could never be so lucky to bear close witness.

Recently we revisited an article that – without a word of exaggeration – has changed the way we operate in our work life and what we expect of others in terms of setting up structures to make a strong control environment.

If you read one article this week – take the time to read this December 2007 article from Atul Gawande on the importance of checklists.

Yes you read correctly.
