Pdca Cycle

The PDCA cycle, also known as the Deming Cycle or the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, is a four-step iterative process used in product management and software development to drive continuous improvement.

First, you "Plan" by setting goals, analyzing data, and creating a plan of action. Then, you "Do" by implementing the plan and making changes. Next, you "Check" by monitoring and measuring the results to determine if the changes have had the desired effect. Finally, you "Act" by either standardizing the changes if they were successful or making further adjustments if needed. The PDCA cycle is a powerful tool for driving innovation and improvement in product management.
