A Simple Approach to Meet You Where You’re At

Recreating the wheel is a waste of time and effort in your biz. Instead, leveraging tried-and-true techniques is the way to go.

There’s an established model called Plan Do Check Act (PDCA). It was developed by the esteemed management consultant (among many other things) Dr. Deming in the 1950s. Yup, this framework’s got some sticking power because it’s understandable and actionable.

Even better, though, is tweaking mainstay models so that they serve modern small businesses. That’s why SB Success Factor’s signature framework — Learn Assess Plan Do Check (lovingly shortened to LAPDC) — is so practical and powerful.

In the LAPDC riff on PDCA, the steps are chunked out slightly differently. This makes the framework less linear and more of a continuous cycle. It’s there for you throughout your business’s (or project’s) lifecycle, with feedback loops to help you make adjustments as you gather data and glean insights.

LAPDC helps you stay organized, focused, and mobilized. It helps you find direction, cover all the bases, and keep moving forward.
