The PDSA Cycles

When opportunities for improvement are discovered, GPS utilizes the PDSA cycle for improvement. This concept based on W. Edwards Deming’s PDSA Cycle for Learning and Improvement includes the following:

  • Plan: Plan the test or observation, including a plan for collecting data
  • Do: Try out the test on a small scale
  • Study: Set aside time to analyze the data and study the results
  • Act: Refine the change, based on what was learned from the test

By using rolling PDSA cycles, we are able to develop new programs that are tested to demonstrate true change.
