CAP-Do – Check-Act-Plan-Do
If you want to take a deep breath, you must first exhale
For any work, Design, Project, Sales and Marketing, I start out by using CAP-Do. CAP-Do should be our first step. Starting with Check is not a new phenomenon. I have 3 books on my shelf that have used it from notable authors like Brian Joiner, Yoji Akao, and John Terninko. They recommend using it in a very similar way when practicing Product Development, Hoshin Kanri and other Lean Management type efforts. I add the idea of Presencing from the work of Peter Senge. You can read a complete summary about this in my blog post: The Reflection Cycle of Lean.
