Plan – Do – Check – Act (PDCA) Cycle
ISO standards advocate the use of an improvement cycle called as the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle or PDCA Cycle. This was first advocated by the renowned Quality Guru Dr. Edwards Deming and hence it is also called “Deming Cycle”.
The PDCA cycle concept can be applied to any process or to the entire system or even to the ISO 27001 Clauses. It helps to realize continual improvements (step by step improvements).
