What is PDCA Cycle?

The PDCA cycle is a way to perform continuous improvement activities. It stands for Plan - Do - Check - Act known as the Deming cycle or the Shewhart cycle. The four steps of PDCA cycle (or Deming wheel) are:


  1. Plan: identify and document opportunities; analyze existing problems; plan changes and steps you will take to address your findings and problems

  2. Do: implement the solution (ideally on a small or controlled test bed). Write down your observations and findings

  3. Check (Study): study what you find and observe during the "test" phase, and modify the steps as needed

  4. Act (Action): implement or improve the process.


PDCA is also a never-ending cycle of improvement, rooted in the way a company or organization improves its products, services, or processes, which requires the long-term dedication and tolerance of those involved. PDCA is a difficult, often incremental process that can feel too slow and unbearable.
