PDCA elements

Suggested Price $5.45

We are leaving in the world of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity), where processes and products must be adaptive. Leaders of the business functions of the same company, are in charge to deliver different business component through the PDCA cycle. But things not always are working fine across a large company when there are some known anti-patterns related to a siloed structure: secrecy and isolation in particular.

If your company is struggling with ideas such as, innovation, collaboration, learning, and synchronisation this is your game. The PDCA cycle made popular by Deming in the ’50s, describes how scientific method can be applied to company processes and is strongly connected to lean and agile principles. It is known with different names and also the PDCA acronym has different version: my favourite is Plan, Do Check and Adjust.

“PDCA elements” is a game to simulate the difficulties emerging in organisations when they are scaling and entering in high competitive and dynamic markets. Every match (~15‟) happens in 8 rounds and there is a competitive version (to be used as a warm up) and a collaborative version (the true essence of the game) where you use the PDCA cycle to activate business components of your company in the most effective way. A Specific tracker is available in the package to help players to track improvents in their startegy.

The basic version of the game can be used with 12 players, normally leaders of the different Business Unit; however the mechanic can easily scale to 100 and more people. So this game can also be used as a perfect ice-breaker with large audience.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
