  6. 6. Inspirations from the Checklist Manifesto By Atul Gawande Average length of patient stay in ICU dropped by half when the Doctors and Nurses in the ICU just by having checklists In the UK, research by the National Patient Safety Agency released last year showed that using the checklist can cut surgery-related death by up to 40% - and there are plans to make the checklist compulsory in hospitals in England and Wales by February 2010. In the US construction industry, a succession of day-by-day checks that guide how the building is constructed and ensure that the knowledge of hundreds, perhaps thousands, is put to use in the right place at the right time in the right way. Annual avoidable failure rate of less than 0.00002 percent
  7. 7. Inspirations from the Checklist Manifesto By Atul Gawande – Aviation Industry • Today’s generation of commercial pilots carry handbooks which made up of hundreds and hundreds of checklists. • They include “normal” checklists for everyday aircraft operations and “non-normal” checklists which cover every conceivable emergency situation a pilot might run into during his or her career. • There are literally hundreds of checklists in every pilot’s handbook they hope they will never get to use The pilot and copilot got out their checklists and managed to restore engine power without the passengers even noticing anything was amiss.
  8. 8. Checklists in Agile are well known - We just used them to the hilt Stories shared by Product Owners (n-2) days PRE-GROOMING DONE (n-1) day GROOMING DONE n day In Agile requirements are “evolving” and it is understood well. But it is not acceptable when there are lots of loose ends after the Sprint has started. The problem was sufficient thought had not been given to the stories during the Grooming/Grooming was not happening correctly So the Solution ? Task breakup done for the just groomed user story Confirm DoR met Pre-Planning Regression Test Cycle Release Planning Production Rollouts and Deployments
  9. 9. CREATING POSITIVITY – WHY NEEDED ?
  10. 10. CREATING POSITIVITY – A SIMPLE APPROACH THAT WORKS “I did not know so many of my Team mates had so much positive to say about me”
