As mentioned in On not teaching PDCA, I’ve been using an A3 template in my training classes and debrief/action workshops. I’m now releasing under the same model as Featureban – I’ve given it a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, you can download the PDF here, and drop me a line for the original .xlsx file if you want to translate it or adapt it in some other way.
I typically cover it in this order:
- Assumptions & Dependencies
- Pilot Experiments (potentially spawning new A3’s)
- Pilot Experiments (again, if prompted by the risks)
What if we put agreement on outcomes ahead of solutions?

Hi Mike, thank you for sharing the template. I would like to translate it to German… Reiner
Hi Reiner, that’s great! I’ve sent you the original.
