Keeping Track of PDCA Status - downloadable visual wall chart

A small, but simple visual tool to help you and everyone else see the PDCA status of all your projects.

A good story needs a good picture, and the PDCA status of your projects can be easily visualized using this downloadable wall chart:

[##download## Download PDCA Wall Chart] PDF 1.70 mb

It includes the wall chart and a set of instructions on how to use it. The PDF is unlocked, so you can import it into Adobe Illustrator and modify them as you require.

Did you find it useful? Does the wall chart itself need kaizen? Send me some feedback.


Usage Instructions
  1. Print the wall chart out on A3 paper or larger, and pin it to your notice board
  2. On Post-It notes, write down the name of your project. Use one post-it for one project.
  3. Place the post-it on the correct part of the PDCA chart.
  4. Once you have completed a step, move the post-it to the next stage of the PDCA process.

Colour Coded Post-Its

You can also use different coloured Post-It notes to show project status. For example, a yellow Post-It could indicate that the project is running on schedule, while a red post-it means it is running late. Alternatively, you could use the colours to indicate project priority or perhaps project urgency.

You can read more about horenso (effective communication), PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act), mieruka (use of visuals) and 5-why here, which also includes articles, tutorials and downloadable diagrams, sheets, PDFs and other tools to help you implement kaizen and bring the competitive edge of the Toyota Way to your manufacturing or service-industry project or organization.
