— Mahatma Gandhi

The Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is an integral part of PQI activities at SVdPSP. When a potential area for improvement is identified, we initiate a PIP by first asking three questions:

What are we trying to accomplish?
How will we know that change will lead to improvement?
What are the measurable outcomes we wish to see?
After we have sufficiently answered these questions, we then work to identify actions that will result in the desired outcomes. During this phase of the process we:

Define the processes currently in place
Identify opportunities for improvement that exist
Look for root causes of problems that have occurred
Decide what we will change
Engage in Plan-Do-Check-Act cycles.
