Lesson 03: Ted Talk – Atul Gawande

Philip Arnfield Mentor Courses

This 19 minutes Ted Talk requires no introduction.

In my mind, the key take home messages for business advisors, and their clients, from this presentation are these:

  • If checklists work for procedures in an operating theater, name me a business type, or process within in a business, where checklists would not have application?
  • Checklists make experts better.
  • Systems comprise three¬†skills:
    1. Find out where your failures are.
    2. Devise solutions.
    3. Develop an ability to implement.
