Checklists - a way to save lives

This presentations started when I read this statement in a newspaper:
“18 patient less died after operation measures over a period of 3 month”

I have been using checklists during many years in my work with software test. I think of checklist as a support to help my test team to remember things we most of the time already know, but which we might forget when testing moves into its crucial period, just before deadline of a project, or a specific level of testing.

During the presentation, I will talk about 7 checklist I find of interest and value to use during a project.

Let me add that my approach to checklist is, and the approach I want to stress in this presentation is an intelligent use of checklists. Checklist are to be used as guidelines for my testers and team members, not as firm rules that removes the responsibility of people to use their own knowledge and skills.
