Process Mapping and Flows - When Pictures Say it All

Pictures say 1,000 words and visual illustration is always an effective method for explaining complex ideas to each other. Process flows are a graphical representation of how things get done in an organization. It helps us to visualize the details of the process and guide our decision making. We use it to easily illustrate major components of a process, including the inputs, outputs, steps, decision points, and interactions with other systems. Process flows help us identify bottlenecks, points of contact with customers, and highlight value-adding activities. 

The effectiveness of the process flow depends on the writer’s experience and knowledge. We must be cognizant of possible pitfalls of hard to read flows. If we create a confusing flow it may inhibit our ability to identify improvement opportunities.

During this session we will practice several techniques for creating process flows.
