The PDCA Cycle is the underlying method/strategy which underpins the
approach. It is also commonly known as the Deming or Shewhart cycle.
It is an iterative approach to quality management, broadly comprising the following steps:
PLAN (create the requisite objectives and processes)
DO (implement the above)
CHECK (evaluate and monitor the defined processes)
ACT (modify processes for improvement).
It is sometimes also known as PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act).
PDCA is core to the
implementation of an ISMS (Information Security Management System), and is documented within the standard itself.
