A control plan is a document that outlines the essential measures required to maintain a process at its optimal level following an improvement initiative. It helps ensuring that the improvements achieved will not deteriorate once the improved process is handed back to its owners. The control plan typically includes information about the controls in place, performance metrics, and a reaction plan to guide the team in the event of deviations.
