In this post I discuss three key benefits of using a project start checklist and why you should use one.
The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande Summary
My favorite part of the book is the Van Halen "no brown M&Ms" contract clause discussed in chapter 4. If you don't read anything else on the summary, I suggest reading my notes on chapter 4.
Onboarding Checklist (Includes Free Template)
Training and onboarding new team members is challenging. There is a lot involved and it is easy to leave out important steps. When you onboard an employee, you want to train them methodically and give them the tools to be successful. To be purposeful in training and to ensure I don't forget any critical steps, I've created this checklist to guide our onboarding process.
RFI Checklist and Template
Inspired by The Checklist Manifesto, I developed this checklist for processing an RFI. I've included a free template you can download.
