A3 and PDCA Problem Solving Overview

A3 problem solving creates a standardized approach to problem-solving that is simple to use and learn, yet it uses "scientific" approaches versus opinions and anecdotes for problem-solving. A3 problem solving can be used every day by everyone in the organization. It is also very effective for solving problems that do not require the power and dedication of LSS projects or Kaizen techniques to solve. PDCA involves a method of planning, doing, checking, and taking actions. This course uniquely combines these two methods to be synergistic. In fact, combining the power of these two methods together in one course has proven to be the most effective way to learn these two problem-solving methods.
