I hope to share some of that process with you in this section.

Not PDCA, but CDSF (coined term)

CDSF (a term coined) is a process that often takes place at Mogic, and is used by the team when coming up with new services and events.

The word CDSF does not exist in the world, but is so named by an acronym.

In contrast, PDCA is a framework that is generally used to successfully manage business operations.

P = PLAN, D = DO, C = CHECK, A = ACTION, in short, it means to plan, do, evaluate results, and improve.

With PDCA, the emphasis tends to be on "planning first" and "measuring numerical values," which may not work well when creating something that has never been done before from scratch.

This is because there is no precedent and no way to "plan" because they are trying something they have never done before.

If we were forced to make it up, it would look like a plan to clarify the objectives by February 1 and find the means by February 10. If we can make the objectives by February 1, it would be OK, and the quality of the content may not be discussed that much.

In the case of teamwork-type projects, which are often done in Mogic, the order is C = CONCEPT, D = DISCUSSION, S = SYMBOL, and F = FEEDBACK, unlike PDCA.

One person comes up with the concept first, and then the entire team discusses it from various angles and expands the information.

Next, the creator selects and chooses from the expanded information, creates a small symbolic object, and then all team members comment on whether it is interesting or not, and rethink the concept once again.

In other words, instead of checking the accuracy of the PLAN and improving it, the process becomes one of testing and reworking the assumptions of what you want to make, which may or may not be similar.
