Flawless execution of the perfect plan results in optimal performance. Typically, each iteration is one step closer to desired performance.


Compare actual with desired performance, and determine the best actions required to close the performance gap.


Act on the results of the Key Performance Indicators. Make changes and improvements to the appropriate processes.
