During the design of studies to test a change, those responsible for developing the change should continually be asking themselves how they could reduce the risks of the test and still gain some knowledge. The following are some ways to design a test on a small scale: ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Simulate the change (physical or computer simulation). Have others in the organization with knowledge of the change review and comment on it. Have members of the project team test the change before introducing it to others.

Do we need to learn about other implications (such as costs) of the change? 30/07/11 12:58 PM IMPROVEMENT METHODOLOGY ● ● ● 11 Are we ready to implement the change on a full-scale basis? Do we need to modify the proposed change or develop an alternative change? Should we drop consideration of the proposed change? The decision on course of action will lead to developing the next PDSA Cycle. The use of multiple cycles allows knowledge to increase as we progress from testing to implementing a change, thus minimizing risk and consequences of any failures.
