Correction! Go DELIBERATELY and INTENTIONALLY to Go Fast

Go SLOW to Go Fast is a commonly stated approach to large and small implementation and change processes.  While the concept seems to make sense to many people, often it is used as an excuse to go so slowly that there is no real impact on the system.  It is the design and implementation of processes that determines the speed and effectiveness of change.

Blending the Glasser/Baldrige Models with the PDSA process helps to prepare for intentional, deliberate planning and implementation.
