Shewhart’s PDCA Cycle

Trimming unnecessary steps in a business process adds productivity value in any business.  Changes for changes sake are not always best for business so it is recommended that trims are tested throughout the action plans following a business process mapping exercise.  In this video we look at Shewhart’s PDCA Cycle

Feel free to request the templates I am happy to share.

1. Recognise the cyclical approach to testing your business models and making changes using the PDCA Cycle


2. Identify the measurable data before the testing process

3. Compare the measurable data after the testing process


4. Adopt & Roll out if positive

5. Adapt if results are promising but not conclusive and test again

6. Abandon if the results are negative

Please do share your experiences with these models in the comments below.  I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.

PS – If you need further help then give me a call on 07962 626604 to arrange a Skype session with me.
