Deming/Shewhart PDSA Loop

The PDSA loop of W. Edwards Deming and Walter Shewhart.

  1. Plan: determine scope of project as well as interval of initial iteration

  2. Do: execute - small steps in controlled circumstances

  3. Study: gather empirical evidence, involve the customer if possible

  4. Act: take action to improve or standardize the plan or process

Rinse and repeat until complete. It's very Scrum.
