PDCA →Applied anywhere and everywhere!!
Writing about web page KBAM
Where ever there is need for continuous improvement, I have seen the PDCA cycle… Mr deming has left this world with a great gift in the shape of Deming Wheel. It can be applied for resolution of any kind of issue an organization or even a person is encountering. The application of this particular diagram is immense. While doing my pma on safety and health management, I came across many different standards that exist for the management of health and safety within an organization. I have come to realize that the concept behind the different standards is quite similar. All the international health standards have the following points in common. Senior management is required to establish the organization’s health and safety policy, ensure the major risks have been identified and required precautions are taken to reduce impact of those risks, ensure documents are properly compiled and audited periodically, ensure that the policy is communicated through out the organization and is reviewed periodically and improved continuously. The guidelines for all these are based on the Demings cycle of continuous improvement as explained by HSE in their book ‘management of health and safety’.
We started the MBE program by studying Deming and we end this program with Deming. Deming’s teachings have been with us through out the module!! It has definitely been a great learning experience for me… Hope it has been the same for everyone else?
