Plan Do Check Act

Think, but don’t overthink. Consider, but don’t consider so much that you fail to take action.

Plan, prepare and strategize, but don’t stop there. Do what you have planned.

Plan – Do – Check – Act is a framework that was created by quality guru Edward Deming as a way of structuring problem solving and continuous improvement. It’s simple in its approach but very powerful in its delivery.

The generic steps of PDCA are:

Plan – Identify the problem, where you want to be and gather the facts. Start to define the reasons and get to the root causes.

Do – Implement the improvement and test.

Check – Check if it’s worked and review the data

Act – If it’s worked, standardize the improvement. If not, tackle the next problem and repeat PDCA again
