In this Masterclass we help you get the MOST from your small scale tests of change by showing you how to deepen your learning and make the time you invest in every test.

  • Understand what makes for a great PLAN
  • Get to grips with the DO: embrace the concept of ‘fail safe, learn fast’
  • Articulate the rationale for your test and know how to capture results that you can STUDY
  • Be clear about the ACTion: Abandon, Again, Adapt, Adopt, Extend…
  • Ramp up your PDSA efforts to do multiple cycles in a ‘PDSA series’

You will explore the genesis of PDSA and the ongoing research into its use in order to develop sustainable solutions to recurring problems. You will learn how to breakdown change ideas into small test-size components, use simulation to minimize risk, bring your teams on board by building confidence and will, and how to interrogate data to know whether or not you have generated a sustainable systems change.

By the end of the Masterclass you will be able to:

  • Understand what makes for a great PLAN
  • Get to grips with the DO: embrace the concept of ‘fail safe, learn fast’
  • Articulate the rationale for your test and know how to capture results that you can STUDY
  • Be clear about the ACTion: Abandon, Again, Adapt, Adopt, Extend…
  • Ramp up your PDSA efforts to do multiple cycles in a ‘PDSA series’

Throughout this masterclass you will be rethinking your relationship with ‘small’ and will become practiced in recording tests in order to learn more than ever!
