PDCA Complete is the brainchild of Robert Broughton and Giles Johnston. Both are passionate about continuous improvement and effective business management.
Whilst working with consulting clients, to help them improve their operational performance, both of them realized that a few simple changes around task management had a huge impact. It is the 80/20 rule in effect...
What were some of the common issues we found?
Lack of integration
ISO management systems were separated from day to day task management. You had to remember to manage both system (despite them being required to be integrated).
Existing web tools
Existing web based task management tools were too easy to get wrong.
Ticking off the wrong tasks, no user controls and difficulty in seeing what the initial tasks were after they had been checked off.
Who are Robert and Giles?

So, we built PDCA Complete!
Robert and Giles had developed a software program before, called Streamliner. It was great, it helped businesses to improve... but it wasn't cloud based.
Let's face it, that's where most software lives nowadays and for good reason.
PDCA Complete lets you overcome all of the challenges listed above:
But, this one is in the cloud
PDCA Complete is hosted in the cloud. This means that you can access it from any device.
We wanted to do this so that you could jump in a meeting room and throw your data up on a big screen. Or, access the mobile version from your smartphone if you suddenly remember something when you got home from work.
All of the tools are available via a web browser and reduce the amount of time you spend in meetings and following up.
The My Tasks screen is the new hub for those of you that want to work in an efficient and effective manner.
The road to PDCA Complete
After extensive Alpha and Beta testing (in the Construction and Engineering sectors), we rolled out the software.
We have users all over the world, becoming more effective and efficient with their efforts.
