The Practice of Learning Teams
Special Series: PDCA Learning Teams Facilitation Framework - Part Three - Check/Study and Act
April 14, 2021
Welcome to the 30th episode of the podcast series. During the month of April, we will be exploring the PDCA Model for Learning Teams facilitators. The PDCA Facilitation framework for Learning Teams has been developed by the authors of The Practice of Learning Teams to assist a facilitator in gaining knowledge and experience in conducting Learning Teams by framing some of the key concepts and thinking to be applied.
Hi Safety FM listeners, this is Brent Sutton, one of the co-hosts of the new podcast series The Practice of Learning Teams, with my fellow co-hosts Glynis McCarthy and Brent Robinson.

Our goal is to support you on your journey and build a better community of practice for Learning Teams.

During the month of April, we will be exploring the PDCA Model for Learning Teams facilitators.

On today's podcast, I, Glynis McCarthy and Brent Robinson complete exploring the PDCA Model for Learning Teams facilitators, with the Check/Study and Act part of the PDCA cycle.

We will explore the context of:
1. Organizational, worker and facilitator learning
2. The value of maintaining a journal as a facilitator
3. Using the SPIN model to give context to the learning team output when sharing the learnings
4. The importance of implementing and reviewing improvements
5. And the need to review those changes and improve or remove them if they are not working as expected by workers and the organization.

Next week in Episode 31, when we will reflect on the series and feedback from our listeners and also look at the Everyday Learning Team video that is being released the week of the 19th of April.
