    With all the advancements in Quality Assurance and software testing, and the inclusion of the tools and technology in the industry, do you think people are actually forgetting about PDCA and the old school lessons regarding quality?

    PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) approach achieves a balance between the systems and behavioural aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.

    Plan–Do–Check–Act Procedure:
    Plan. Recognize an opportunity and plan a change.
    Do. Test the change. Carry out a small-scale study.
    Check. Review the test, analyze the results and identify what you’ve learned.
    Act. Take action based on what you learned in the study step: If the change did not work, go through the cycle again with a different plan. If you were successful, incorporate what you learned from the test into wider changes. Use what you learned to plan new improvements, beginning the cycle again.
