Call it what you want... PDSA, PDCA, the Deming Cycle, the Shewhart Cycle... it's all the same thing. Four seemingly simple steps to eliminate the problems your company faces.
Sure looks simple... but using PDSA isn't as simple as those four steps. I wish it was that easy, but you really have to know how to utilize each of the four steps to have effective problem solving and continual improvement efforts within your organization.
You begin with the Plan Phase, and there's absolutely no substitute for a good plan. However, without a strong, and robust plan, you might as well be shooting darts with a blindfold over your eyes. Sure, sometimes you'll hit the target, but most of the time you'll probably miss.
In our e-book, Using the Deming Cycle, we take you through a case study using PDSA. Each of the four phases details how the problem solving/improvement team attacked a problem using this methodology and also lists other important aspects of continual improvement.
That's right, we've written an easy to use e-book about PDSA. We eliminated as much of the technical jargon as we could... we prefer to make it easy for you to learn, rather than to put you to sleep.
Then we priced the book so that everybody could afford it! The concepts of quality and continual improvement shouldn't be beyond the reach of the masses. These important concepts should be available to anyone that needs them.
For only $8 US, you too can learn how to effectively utilize Plan- Do- Study- Act within your company. In our case study, you'll see the steps that a real-life problem solving team took to resolve a customer complaint within their organization. You'll see their process data. And you'll understand how they reached their conclusions.
What could be easier than this simple, step-by-step approach to learning how to make the Deming Cycle effective at your company?
