Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations
Plan:Do:Check:Act model originally credited to Shewhart
When facilitating a team through a challenge taking breaks to evaluate what is happening during the action and what is the teams next step proves useful.
Individuals on teams when involved in challenges are really close to the problem and taking a Plan:Do:Check:ACT (PDCA) break will create clarity and teach a model of action steps and solutions finding in real-time examples.
Here is how the model works;
Prior to the team-building activity…you (the facilitator) explain the PDCA model and explain that every 3-5 minutes you are going to pause the action act ask the questions that are in the model. Even if the team is doing awesome every 3-5 minutes the action will stop and we will quickly go through the model.
Here is the model;
Try it and let me know what happens.
