As stated in my previous blog, almost every change methodology uses some form of PDCA. This can lead to a one size fits all approach in PDCA and to PDCA fatigue in employees. Especially if previous change efforts with PDCA failed.
So how to deal with this? You need to get to know the company first and make sure that the company gets its own PDCA based process which fits the needs of the company. You also need to know why previous efforts failed by doing root cause analysis.
The most common root causes of PDCA failing
Reduce struggle and grow people
Helping people to improve with structural results is the best thing there is. You see people grow and enjoy improvement. This is unfortunately not something that comes easy. It requires a lot a discipline, work, patience and love. When employees feel empowered and capable to do PDCA well you will be surprised at the results. Often they will be surprised as well. I hope you enjoy your journey and make sure they get to enjoy theirs.
