Research Topic

Throughout the course you will be able to apply the PDSA improvement model to a personal improvement project. Choose something that you can change and measure, examples include time management, stress reduction, budgeting, healthy living (can include weight loss, diet management and exercise), smoking cessation, improvement of speaking and communication skills. You will research this topic (that’s why this assignment is named “Research Topic”) in the NAU library and apply best practices to make changes. Other improvement projects can be conducted once approved by the instructor.


By this time, you should have determined the criteria you will use to measure your improvement, be sure to relate it to your aim statement and references. After viewing “How to make a run chart,” construct your own run chart to plot your data. For more information, the IHI also has several “whiteboard” demonstrations. Please feel free to utilize the Likert Scale (Excel file) provided for you.
