In this episode, we discuss the book, “The Checklist Manifesto,” by Atul Gawande. Gawande is a doctor, so the majority of his examples are from a doctor’s perspective. However, many concepts are transferable between industries, including the legal field. Listen in as we go into where checklists came from, how they are beneficial, and their legal application.
We are coming up on our 100th episode and second anniversary of Your Law Firm Is a Business – but we need your help. To celebrate, we want to add another 200 unique new listeners before we reach our 100th episode. You can help by sharing our show on social media and tagging us or leaving us a review on your podcast platform of choice. If we hit the goal, we will provide fun giveaways, including things from some of our tech tips episodes.

- Go back to your office and either look into your file or talk to your team and ask, “Do we have any file we consider a checklist?” I want you to take that checklist once you find them.
- Take a look at it and identify if it is a checklist or a workflow. If it is a checklist, then use it to build out some workflows in more detail.
