  • Answer Without data you are just another person
    with an opinion.

Five-Step Improvement Process
PROGRAM
Step 1 Document Performance Results
Step 5 Implement Solutions
Step 4 Pilot-Test and Evaluate Solutions
Step 2 Identify Root Causes
Step 3 Choose Best Solutions
13
PROGRAM
Step 1 Document Performance Results
  • Understand the problem completely before you seek
    solutions
  • How do you analyze performance data?
  • What questions should be addressed?
  • What tools and methods can be used to present and
    analyze data?
  • How should data quality problems be considered in
    analyzing data?

14
Step 2Identify Root Causes
PROGRAM
  • Dont settle for conventional wisdom and symptoms
    - never stop asking why?
  • What methods can you use to identify potential
    causes?
  • How can you evaluate potential causes?
  • How do you identify the most critical root causes
    to focus the search for solutions?

15
Step 3 Choose Best Solutions
PROGRAM
  • Dont be too quick to adopt best practices before
    getting the facts straight
  • How do you evaluate strategies and models?
  • Sound Theory--Why and how are they expected to
    work?
  • Strong Evidence--What evidence shows they work?
  • How do you identify possible strategies and model
    practices?
  • How do you compare and evaluate alternative
    solutionsimprovement strategies and model
    practices--and make a decision?

16
Step 4Pilot-Test and Evaluate Solutions
PROGRAM
  • Make sure it works for you somewhere before
    applying it everywhere
  • How do you design pilot-tests or first-stage
    implementations?
  • What tools and methods can be used for testing
    and evaluation?
  • How do you decide whether to move to full
    implementation?

17
PROGRAM
Step 5Implement Solutions
  • Dont say youve solved the problem until youve
    fully implemented solutions
  • and achieved results
  • How do you measure the implementation of the
    improvement strategy and model?
  • How do you evaluate implementation and make
    mid-course corrections?
  • How do you use the results to rethink root causes
    and seek other improvement strategies and models?
