PDSA cycle

Print this invite « Back to Glossary Index

A method for learning and improvement based on a scientific method. The PDSA cycle includes four phases: Plan, Do, Study, and Act. PDSA cycles can be used to develop, test and implement changes, initially on a small scale. They can be used sequentially over time to build knowledge about what changes work, why they work, when they don’t work and how the changes can be adapted.
