Problems PDCA Complete solves
We built PDCA Complete to help organizations deals with common problems that stop projects from happening and business operations running smoothly
Most people don't write their tasks down. Their busy working days means that they forget what needs to be done. PDCA Complete captures all your team's tasks in one place.
PDCA Complete's audit tool is built into the system. Data is easy to retrieve for external audits and the corrective actions flow into your My Tasks screen - one place for all of your tasks.
When there are too many good opportunities to consider, how do you spend your time wisely? We've built an effective prioritization system directly in PDCA Complete!
Lack of integration
ISO management systems are often separate from day to day task management systems. We've made it so that you don't have to remember to manage both systems (despite them being required to be integrated).
Separate to do lists
Personal, project and team to do lists converge in PDCA Complete. The My Tasks screen allows you to manage your team's workloads and filter for what you need to work on today.
Lack of accountability
When teams don't complete their assigned tasks they often blame others for their responsibilities. This reduces moral and slows down critical improvements. PDCA Complete makes this visible to managers.
Lack of team support
Tasks are often completed in a void, without team support. Tasks affect other team members and their processes. Without their input, new changes can cause unwanted headaches. PDCA Complete builds team communication into all tasks.
No review process for task completion
Many times team members check off tasks as complete when they are only partially complete (and do not provide the needed results). PDCA Complete allows you to set up task approval for each task set, if required.
No organizational control
Team members can often issue others tasks without following a chain of command. These types of tasks cause unwanted time wasting and are avoided using PDCA Complete's team setup function.
Too many meetings
Meetings can occur because of poor task communication. Some team members need to be verbally updated on the tasks only. These unnecessary meetings disrupt the whole team. PDCA Complete's notifications reduce the need for extra 'update' meetings.
Lack of task history
Organizations often cannot pin down exactly when and what changes / tasks occurred. PDCA Complete's history provides important details for the organization's knowledge and progress tracking.
Losing sight of infrequent repetitive tasks
Some tasks must occur yearly, quarterly, weekly or any other schedule to prevent ensure project progress or business compliance. Losing sight of these tasks can cause negative consequence which can lead to financial losses for the organization. PDCA Complete increases visibility through the My Tasks function and task history.
Skipping steps in complex tasks
Complex tasks, with serial tasks requiring to be completed prior to actually closing out the overall task, introduces risk. Team members can often forget steps, eroding the results they produce. Our workflows modules helps your team to capture these steps and improve their results.
Premature task closure
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.
We've remedied this in PDCA Complete.
