Learning Vocabularies

Last April I wrote a brief article showing the relationship between five different learning models. I’ve discovered two more for your edification:

The Shewhart (Deming) Cycle of Plan, Do, Check, Act

and the Six Sigma DMAIC cycle: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control

I find it so interesting that the same basic ideas have circulated (no pun intended) in so many different disciplines for so many years. Does anyone know if there is a good description of a universal / abstract cycle of which all the others could reasonably be considered instances?
