Host Mark Graban and Bill have a free-flowing conversation about thinking of improvement as a series of experiments. Bill talks about the need to be disciplined and to follow the full Plan Do Check Act (or Plan Do Study Adjust) cycles. When is “failure” in our attempts to improve to be expected (if not celebrated) and when is it a major problem. Bill and Mark talk about that and more.
