Interesting Book on Reducing Errors with a piece of paper, hand drawn boxes and a pencil…

Saw this review in Buisness Week on Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon and New Yorker writer. His new book, “The Checklist Manifesto-How to Get Things Right” has just been published…and he describes how, by using simple checklists, they reduced the infection rate in surgical ward/hospital’s that utilized the checklist principles.

Maybe some deck installers would do well to read this book…http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=waterproofdec-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B00332YPB2&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrhttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=waterproofdec-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0035GS7M4&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr
