Optimizing your business
Optimizing your business is important. This model can be a useful tool for achieving that.
PDCA, or Plan-Do-Check-Act, is a four-step management method used to continuously improve processes and products. It involves planning a process or product, performing the plan, checking the results, and then acting on what was learned to improve the process or product. This cycle is repeated continuously.
- Plan/Think – business plan
- Do – execution list
- Check / Learn – see what works
- Act/ Iterate / repeat
