World-class service really begins with a thorough checklist.
Take air travel for example. Airlines are in the business of getting travellers to and from destinations quickly and safely; they’re responsible for thousands of lives every day. For a successful flight, airplanes and pilots need to meet a set of standard safety requirements prior to take-off. Planes come with a variety of checklists that simplify complex processes, including an engine-failure checklist, a pre-boarding checklist, and a cleared for take-off checklist. The last thing anyone wants is for a pilot to forget what to do during a time of crisis. Having a checklist on hand can remove the guesswork that comes with time-sensitive, critical issues like in-flight emergencies. In the case of flying, a proper checklist can save the lives of thousands of people.
