PDCA cycle: the principle behind Aalto’s quality system
Aalto’s quality system is based on the principle of continuous development, or the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle (PDCA). At Aalto, the PDCA is a cycle of planning activities in line with agreed objectives, acting on the plans, measuring success based on key performance indicators and evaluating as well as adjusting activities based on feedback. Below you can find activities that fall under each step of the PDCA cycle.
