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. Once tested, you have the confidence required to deliver your solutions in full, with the right controls in place to make sure they last the test of time. In this course, we will:
– Explore exactly what PDCA is, going into each section specifically.
– Break the approach down further by using a real life example of a PDCA approach, showing you exactly what was done, how, why and its impact.
– Explore the need for change and continuous improvement within our businesses.
– Run through the various plans, tools and templates that are common when deploying PDCA (such as Implementation Plan, Control Plan etc.)
By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and the confidence to deliver a full end to end Plan Do Check Act project. You will know how to spot opportunities and challenges in your business, plan to address them and deliver the right solutions at the right time. If you are looking to improve your operational performance, continuously, this course will enable you to do just that.
