What would happen?

Would the work magically happen? Unlikely.

Would everyone be clearer about what needs to happen? Undoubtedly.

Would results appear? Sure, if the actions are appropriate.

What happens if you don’t write them down?

Confusion? Quite possibly.

Frustrations? Yes, when no progress is made.

Anger? Depending on the person and the deviation from the original requirement.

A simple remedy

Regardless of whether you use PDCA Complete, or not, writing down your actions is a tried and tested approach to get results.

Think it. Write it. Schedule it. Do it.

That’s about as complicated as it needs to be.

If it’s that simple…

…why don’t more people do this?

We’d love to know the answer too. We see this all the time.

An instruction is given. Or, a meeting is held. Or, a project is mulled over.

Some people write things down and some people don’t.

I haven’t studied the history of recording tasks, but my hunch is that it has been like this since the dawn of time.

The big difference

But, what I have studied is this. The people that tend to write things down, tend to get them done.

Of course, there are exceptions to the rule but we don’t recommend leaving this to chance!

That’s why we built PDCA Complete, to make it easy to record tasks and then take action.

For example, our meetings module allows you to capture actions from your meetings and instantly distribute the actions.
