Micro Plan Do Study Act (PDSA)

A Micro PDSA is a useful tool for documenting a small test of change.

The mPDSA is a way to take a large continuous improvement project and break it down into smaller, more manageable steps over shorter periods of time, usually no longer than 30 to 60 days. 

MPDSA is an effective tool for helping people feel comfortable taking on continuous improvement projects. It allows them to see the improvement in their work very quickly. (this could go on the first page)

The PDSA cycle is shorthand for testing a change by developing a plan to test, (Plan), carrying out the test (Do), observing and learning from the consequences (Study), and determining what modifications should be made (Act).
