Continuous Improvement Process: Validation

The purpose of the Validation Phase is to analyze data, identify key findings, and develop observations. During Validation, personnel analyze the collected data to identify and ensure the accuracy of observations and potential recommended actions. Validation also involves considering additional data to determine if more information is needed to demonstrate the effect(s) of each observation and the underlying issues. 

The Validation Phase consists of two key elements:

  1. Conducting data analysis of collected data to identify conclusions, insights, and trends.
  2. Developing observations, analyses, and potential recommended actions.
