checklists

This excellent article on the power of checklists resonates on a number of levels: anybody who has paid attention to the GTD/org-porn world will find something to like, anybody who has had to deal with the institutionally-entrenched “god” attitudes of physicians will see a lot of familiar stuff, and people who are interested in the implications of research funding policy may end up questioning some assumptions. It’s a relatively long read, but rewarding.
