Slow and steady progress?

I’ve been wondering if there is a political theory or concept that says liberalism is the correct way of governing a developed democracy, like the United States, but that progress should be slow and steady? Instead of trying to make massive changes all at once, to do it in a way that eases society into it. For example, instead of trying to move the entire healthcare system in this country over to single payer all at once, it’s better to chip away at the current system and introduce more government control slowly. That way it wouldn’t be disruptive or freak people out. And said freaked out people who get freaked out by rapid change tend to run to right wing lunatics.

Is there a philosophy says a society like ours should progress but should do so in a slow and steady manner? Would that be more “progressivism” instead of liberalism? Any ideas?
