What are the 4 phases of an continuous improvement?

Continuous Improvement can be broken down into manageable segments which can be repeated for each cycle. The PDCA cycle, or the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, encourages problem solving in a planned way that enables you to factor in feedback when making changes to your system.

Here are the four steps of the PDCA Cycle:

  1. Plan - Analyze the situation to identify problems and select a possible solution.
  2. Do - Test the solution on a small scale and collect data over a limited timeframe.
  3. Check - Compare the outcomes with expectations and tweak it even further with feedback
  4. Act - Roll out the solution at full scale with and make it a documented standard practice.
