Why is PDCA important?

There is one process that I am continually trying to improve….the parenting process. We want our children to be curious, independent, ambitious and resilient to what life may throw at them. This is a process, that as parents, we all go into with different experiences but I believe that we can still apply the fundamentals of Deming’s PDCA (Plan – Do –  Check – Adjust).

Why is PDCA fundamental to process improvement?

The PDCA framework works well in all types of organisations. It can be used to improve any process or product, by breaking them down into smaller steps or development stages, and exploring ways to improve each one.

So here is how it applied to our family framework!

Plan – At the start of 2021, as a family, we decided set some goals for the year ahead using the Big Life Journal as a framework. This planning phase took a while to work through our individual goals for relationships, health, projects, celebrations, trips and making a difference. We the collated our ideas and came up with our family goals for 2021!

Do – So on to the doing… As the year went by we set about our year, running our little family planning process every week, planning our weekends and activities. Just living live like any other family.

Check – Fast forward to last night, at our family meeting  we decided to check-in on our Big Life Journal family goals for 2021. This was an interesting self reflection on the things that we had wanted to achieve but not quite done.

Adjust – ….and there we go the adjustment process, what changes can we make to ensure we meet our goals. Time to take action!

When to use the PDCA Process?

Use the PDCA cycle when:

  • Starting a new improvement
  • Developing a new or improved process, product, or service
  • Defining a repetitive work process
  • Planning data collection and analysis in order to verify and prioritise problems or root causes
  • Implementing any change
  • Working toward continuous improvement

Learn Essential Innovation Techniques from GippsTech

We don’t have to tell you how hard it is out there for the Gippsland business community. What we do know is that, right now, businesses can’t afford to become complacent or conservative to the point of inaction.

GippsTech is partnering with Committee For Gippsland to deliver Business Resilience Skills Sessions. These two workshops are designed to give business owners and leaders hands-on experience with proven techniques used by the world’s largest companies to confront challenges, identify opportunities, and make informed decisions quickly.

Across these two sessions, you’ll learn how to define the challenges and opportunities around your business, generate and prioritise a range of possible actions, then test initiatives on a small scale to validate your assumptions and choose solutions for wide-scale implementation.

If you’ve ever wondered how the most successful and innovative businesses generate and identify winning ideas for new products, services, or business improvements, and manage to survive and grow even in difficult times, you can’t miss these sessions. It’s not chance, luck, or a genius CEO — it’s a set of processes and frameworks that you can learn and put into place within your business.

These workshops will consist of two sessions:

Session 1: Discovery and Ideation

Discovery sprints generate actionable information and a concrete plan to define your next steps. An introduction to methods of ideation will then teach you how to get past aimless and unfocused brainstorming sessions to generate relevant and achievable ideas to address these challenges and opportunities.

Session 2: Prototyping and Testing

You will learn how to prototype solutions that can be implemented quickly and with minimal investment of time or resources on a small scale. Prototypes allow you to test multiple ideas at once or in quick succession to see which ones best meet your needs and address your challenges.

Follow-up Resources & Coaching

After these sessions, we’ll provide all participants with a whole set of additional resources, including activity templates, recordings of the sessions to review or share with your team, and links to additional information to help you master these techniques and introduce them into your businesses.

We will also provide a follow-up coaching session to every participating business to give you tailored advice on how to put these techniques into practice within your organisation.

We’re pleased to be working in conjunction with Committee for Gippsland to provide these sessions. These workshops – valued at over $500 – are free of charge for Committee For Gippsland members, and $50 for non-members.
