Abstract
Description
The PDCA cycle has been widely used for process improvement; therefore, it is appropriate to think that it is a useful tool for project management. The purpose of this research is to show the main contributions that different authors have made in the implementation of the PDCA cycle for continuous improvement in project management. A documentary review was carried out, using search strategies with keywords in Scopus and Science Direct. Documents from the last 5 years were collected, resulting in a total of 186 articles. When verifying the relevance to the subject of study, the list was reduced to 21. The thematic validity of the PDCA cycle, the variability of business sectors and the countries that implement and study it stand out as results. The European continent leads the volume of publications and despite finding a high volume of articles, many were discarded due to methodological weaknesses.
