Plan Do Check Act is a fantastic, high revered and successful continuous improvement / project management methodology that, if deployed correctly, can deliver incredible results. It is an approach that has been deployed regularly in manufacturing and production environments, and has been adopted in the service industry to great effect.

The aim of the PDCA approach is to enable you to identify an opportunity or problem, plan to address this, identify potential solutions to do so and then test these.
